August 2 – October 8, 2023

Rinoi Imada from Tokyo is an interdisciplinary artist whose ideas are inspired by glass, utilizing glass as a material and thinking tools to create her works. Drawn from a curiosity in the rich subtlety of human experience, her practice takes in various sculptural relationships with glass and glass related processes to explore languages that are easily dismissed, ignored and unseen through our lifetime. Imada earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in Glass from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2021 and is continuing her career as a visual artist and a glass blower. She has received awards and residency opportunities from CSUSB, RIT, and Penland School of Craft in North Carolina in addition to others.

“During my period of time at GlazenHuis, I will explore both blown glass shapes and textured sheet glasses, and seek the shapes in between two techniques using rich facilities.” – Rinoi Imada
