Here at IndieBloom, we are fascinated with space and astronomy. The beauty, allure to visit, mixed with the uncertainty of it all. PlusAlpha Glass– Called spaceglass and conceived by award-winning, Japanese glass artist Satoshi Tomizu through a discovery of heat resistant glass accessories.
A basic description for the technique- crafted using a blowtorch producing a blue flame that is molded via a glass tube under extreme heat temperatures. The process involves intense heating of glass and lampworking, that gives the effect of planets made of opals, flecks of real gold, and trails of colored glass seem to spin and loop like twists in the Milky Way.
Born in Kanagawa Prefecture, a coastal area south of Tokyo in 1980, Satoshi Tomizu was perfecting his craft and skill. When in May 2008, he became the first in his field to develop heat-resistant glass accessories. For more than 10 years, this has increased his profile with TV and many media appearances in Japan, along with design awards and accolades such as appearing in the 2016 music video, Aimer by Ninelie.
