Yuki graduated from Tokyo Glass Art Institute with a master degree in Glass Art in 1997. She then moved to the UK and studied metalwork and jewellery at The Surrey Institute of Art & design University College (UCA Farnham). After graduating, Yuki has worked for a number of internationally renowned glass studios. Since 2006 she has been concentrating mainly on her jewellery work, and she still blows glass too.
Yuki produces precious metal jewellery and Japanese Kimono accessories in designs inspired by nature and seasonal changes. Her work is endlessly tactile and playful, but also classically beautiful, harnessing shape and light to great effect.
With her traditional work, she brings a unique modern essence to an ancient art form.
She also explores the relationship between steel and glass in her mechanical and organic sculptural forms.
Yuki has exhibited her unique sculpture in metal and glass derived from geometry and also natural inspirations.
Yuki has been exhibiting her work across the UK and in Japan in selected galleries.
