Yoshinori Kondo Marbles and Pendants For Sale


You are looking at the work of one of Japan's greatest glass artists, and easily its best marble artist. Indeed, Yoshi has now become the greatest marble artist in the world, taking the construction of his works of art to levels of complexity and beauty that before this was certainly unseen, and these are literally some of the most astounding marbles the world has ever seen! If you are not familiar with Yoshi's work yet, you certainly will become familiar if you hang around the world of art glass marbles very long. These marbles are revered by collectors all around the world, highlighting the finest of collections, and every person that looks at these beautiful creations are stunned by what they see. Yoshi uses the entire canvas of the marble, inside and out, and the depth of what you witness in the glass really takes your breath away.

Yoshi follows in the hallowed Japanese glass tradition of applying painstaking detail to his work which is amazingly precise and tight. He started as a beadmaker with the traditional super soft Japanese satake glass, and then moved on to the much stiffer borosilicate glass. However, he has been able to carry some of those dot work techniques over from the satake to the boro with much success. The results of many hours, and sometimes days, on the torch for each piece are marbles and pendants which will boggle your mind with their complex lines and layers of dots, whether it be masking of dots, or stacking and raking, etc. The patterns he creates flow gracefully across the glass, pulling your eyes in, and your brain as well as you work through the "How in the WORLD did he do that?" process. I have fallen in love with this artist's work, and I believe you will too. Enjoy the view!
