Vestige III - Sachi Fujikake

New ideas will flow into oceans of unforeseen beauty. Likewise, the works of Sachi Fujikake (1985- ) boldly defy the traditional qualities of glass toward realms unchartered, transforming the material into ripples in both time and space. Entitled Vestige, her glass sculptures capture the remains of what is left behind, the beauty of glass as it is fundamentally changed from a hard material into something soft, in many ways capturing the preciousness of time itself as its continuum is bent, twisted and expanded into surrealistic forms of great beauty. Organic and free-flowing, crumpled yet inflated, while imbued with a translucently luscious radiance, Fujikake’s works are spellbinding poems to an innovative new style of abstraction in glass.

After sandblasting her trademark dots onto the surfaces of her layered sheets of white glass, Fujikake further melts and connects 6 separate glass sheets together within a glory hole to comprise an essentially three-dimensional polygon. After this basic form is created, Fujikake then begins to blow air into the cube, thereby helping to warp, inflate and transform the rigid glass into something soft and fluid. Such voluptuously seductive curvatures cannot be achieved by the use of sheet glass alone, and it is the aforementioned ingenious and wildly original combination of various glass techniques – kiln-working, sand-blasting, and blowing glass, that has made Sachi Fujikake one of the frontrunners of an entirely new way of approaching the realm of glass art in the 21st century.
