Yuka Otani

WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass on a series of arts segments that feature past resident artists of the museum. This short features Yuka Otani, a 2015 resident artist at the museum. You might not look at glass and candy and think they have similar properties, but Yuka Otani does. “Those two materials share many characteristics,” she says. “But what if they are made into a unified object?”

A Rhode Island School of Design graduate, Otani has been experimenting with clear materials for quite some time.
