Creative Glass Works in Japan

The team are fresh back from a trip to Japan!

They were commissioned to design and install a glass balustrade, featuring a background of bristol blue glass sheet.  The main feature of the design is the Heron flower which is indiginous to the Hammamatsu area of the Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan.

Designed in 7 panels with the green stems flowing between sheets, the balustrade was installed in a stainless steel frame designed by the Creative Glass Works team.  They were flown to Japan, and the team met the panels on site to undertake the fitting.

This is the second commission that the company has designed and fitted in Japan, and the client has already commissioned further work.  The works have been fitted into the Saginomiya-ryu and Kiji buildings, social welfare centres for elderly people and kindergarten children.  They are the vision of the client, Eisei Takasugi.

Glass used in the project was all from Creative Glass Guild, including St. Just blue flash, from which the flowers were sandblasted, tatra t335 cobalt blue sheet and olive green tatra glass.

We look forward to seeing the next project take shape!
