About the Artist
An independent artist living in Nagoya, Japan, Megumi is a graduate of Aichi University’s Department of Arts and Crafts. Among her laurels, Megumi has been the recipient of a scholarship to the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, WA, and was the top awardee at the Toyota Art Exhibition.
Her current work in cast glass and water — with its focus on refinement of technique, form and function — is reminiscent of ritual containers used in Japanese gardens.
