Akihiro Okama Marbles, Pendants and Beads For Sale


Akihiro Okama is one of Japan's finest glass artists, especially well-known for his intricate beads. However, he is now very well-known for his marbles as well, because they are SPECTACULAR! Aki sometimes uses Japanese satake glass to make his marbles, a very soft glass with a low melting point and a COE of 120. These marbles have a strangely heavy feel to them (much heavier than boro, which is a much harder glass) because of how much lead is in the glass (similar to leaded crystal). They are a true joy to hold and behold. He has also become a master with borosilicate glass as well, as you will see from the boro marbles in this gallery. He even makes paerpweight style soft glass marbles (and paperweights) as well now. He is a master of all things glass and is just flat out GREAT.

Aki is being featured in 2009 at a very exclusive marble exhibition in Japan, along with 12 American artists and 5 other Japanese artists. Quite an honor to be invited to this show, being held at the You-yuusya Gallery.

Please click on a gallery to see more images of each marble and to purchase available marbles. I ship worldwide.
