TENSEI = a certain thing changes to a different thing which has a different quality. The Buddhist word is "reincarnation"
Masahiro Sasaki, the artist & the technologist takes the glass which is an inorganic substance and melts it into what is an organic shape. Sand changes to glass by heat, then after it is formed by Masahiro it is returned to sand through sand blasting. He sees this as collaboration work with glass. The form is born from discovery and the institution of process, technique and experience with the material.
Get along to AVID Gallery in Victoria Street, Chews Lane area and marvel at this glass artwork
