Gu Statuettes

Regular price £130.00 Sale

Gu in Japanese means figure, and these abstract figurines were crafted by Kaori Sakuda in the Toyama prefecture. These charming little sculptures were made by Sakuda using the pâte de verre technique, which is a detailed and difficult form of kiln casting. A form is created with clay, which is used as the basis for a plaster mould. Crushed glass is mixed with a binding material, pressed into the mould and subsequently fired. The heat causes the glass to melt and take on the form of the mould. 

Sakuda’s unique and humorous glass pieces are very popular among young people in Japan, and her work has been displayed at many events and exhibitions throughout the country.

The three Gu Statuettes are sold together as a set.

White: 7cm (h) X 4cm (w) X 4cm (d)
