Yosuke Tsuka


Yosuke Tsusaka


Even among styles of Venetian glass, lace glass is known as a particularly spectacular technique. Fine lines wind around one another, forming complex patterns unique to each piece. In Japan – and even on the world stage – there are likely none so accomplished in lace glasswork as Tsusaka Yosuke.

 

Renowned throughout the world, Venetian glass, true to its name, originated in Venice, Italy. Traditionally, Venetian glassworking techniques were closely guarded, and kept in Venice: until the end of the Second World War, Venetian glassworkers were not even allowed to leave the city so as to prevent specialized knowledge from leaking out into the world.

 

Tsusaka seized on the lace glass technique, and worked on his own to develop it further. It is because of this that he has succeeded in creating works that are more detailed, complex, and elegant than any before.

 

Tsusaka was born in Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture, and first aspired to become some sort of craftsman while he was a student.

He first discovered an interest in ceramics and glassworking while he was in high school. Tsusaka happened to be searching through various books listing opportunities for lessons in various arts when his eyes fell on a posting for a glass workshop in his town that was offering instruction. Thinking that it might be interesting, he enrolled, and was introduced to the artistic world.

 

After graduating high school, Tsusaka decided to pursue glassworking in earnest, and managed to enter the prestigious and highly selective Toyama City Institute of Glass Art, the only public glassworking college in Japan. It is there that he devoted four years of intense effort to studying glass full-time.

Through his courses, Tsusaka studied a wide variety of techniques for creating stained glass, blown glass, cast and molded glass, cut glass, and other styles, but he was particularly taken with a class he took on lace glass, and resolved to master the complex and difficult technique.

 

After graduation, Tsusaka traveled to the United States, where he spent several months as an assistant to Jim Mongrain, a world-renowned Venetian glass artist. He then worked as a workshop assistant at the Corning Museum of Glass, frequently identified as the most authoritative and prestigious glass museum in the world.

 

Once he returned to Japan, Tsusaka worked as a glassworker for several workshops, but his desire to explore the full range of possibilities that glassworking held soon returned, and, beginning in 2007, he spent three years researching various techniques while working as an assistant at his alma mater, the Toyama City Institute of Glass Art.

 

In 2010, at long last, Tsusaka achieved his desire of independence, and established his own practice. Drawing upon his years of experience working at the furnaces of various workshops, he built his own glass furnace according to his own design and specifications.

“I don’t want to rehash all of the usual Venetian glass techniques –I want to make my own, unique style of lace glass,” Tsusaka says.

 

Tsusaka’s recent lace glass designs include Japanese-style works, which incorporate traditional kimono patterns. He also creates a variety of works that fall into styles other than lace glass. “I want to make glass art that I myself would want,” he explains.
