Tim Rawlinson / Kazuki Takizawa : Technicolor / Monochromatic
February 10 @ 10:00 am - May 12 @ 5:00 pm
Kazuki Takizawa is a Japanese glass artist currently based in Los Angeles, California. He graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with High Honors in 2010. He has since worked and taught at various glass educational facilities including Pilchuck Glass School and Public Glass. For the past decade, Takizawa has been making work in glass to speak about his personal experiences with mental illness. His most recent glass installation project, In Between Light and Shadow, was installed at STARworks Glass Lab in North Carolina to bring awareness on mental illness and suicide. He has traveled to numerous universities in the country such as Columbus College of Art and Design and University of Southern California to speak about his work and his experiences with mental illness.
Tim Rawlinson, born in Bristol in 1985, studied Ceramics and glass at Bucks New University, graduating in 2011. He exhibited his degree work that year at New Designers in London where he met Peter Layton. Peter invited Tim to do work experience at London Glassblowing, and following this Tim became a member of the team.
Tim’s work has been prominent in the Gallery at London Glassblowing since 2012, including his solo show ‘Kumano Kudo’ in 2018. Tim’s work has been shown annually at Collect since 2015.
Tim has created his own language in glass through cut and polished sculptural pieces that focus on the interaction between light and glass. This has led to Tim’s inclusion in Europe’s most prestigious exhibition, ‘The Coburg Glass Prize’ in Germany in 2014 and the International Glass Prize at the GlazenHuis in Belgium 2015.
