By fusing traditional Japanese techniques with modern Canadian inspiration, Minori Takagi has developed a new style of wearable art. Her translucent glass chains are formed by linking handcrafted glass circles into one another, fashioning pieces that seem delicate but are actually resilient — solid loops that gleam radiant in the light. "With these forms, my glass art reminds me of the magic I used to watch my grandmother work—from raw substance emerges a new, poetic creation."
Minori's glass jewellery is widely acclaimed. It won Vancouver Magazine’s 2019 “Made in Vancouver” Style category, and has been featured in The Georgia Straight, the Canadian craft magazine Studio Magazine, and the book 1000 Beads by Lark Crafts. Minori lives and works in Vancouver, BC.
