Stained glass artist gives color, shape to light

Date: 17 October 2011
Subdued light of various colors shining through stained glass gives a feeling of warmth that is perfect for autumn days and evenings.

Stained glass lamps and other home furnishings can change the atmosphere of a home.

Yokohama Stained Glass Studio, run by stained glass artist Noriko Omura in Yokohama, is full of lamps, wall decorations and other works Omura has made with floral, leafy and geometric patterns.

"The nature of the light depends on the material of the glass. Some works give off sparkling light, while others send out a glimmer. I always try to incorporate such features into my works," Omura said.

Omura initially aspired to be a painter, but was charmed by stained glass about 35 years ago while living the United States, where she and her husband had moved in connection with his job. "I realized three-dimensional artwork penetrated by light had possibilities different from those of painting," Omura said.

After studying the artform in the United States, she returned to Japan and set up her own studio in 1980. She has created a variety of works, including a large stained glass window for the chapel of Ferris University in Yokohama.
