Aki Rogers

Glasgow Architectural GlassColdworking


Born in Japan, with a passion for drawing. For many years I have been designing art, using a wide variety of materials, and at present I am using my drawing skills to transpose onto glass, utilising the light fused within my drawings, which enhances the unique qualities that glass has to offer. My glass works are mostly with painted images in kilnformed or architectural fields.

I design, draw influence and I am inspired by organic world such as nature, plants and animals, humans and their emotions. I try to capture and emulate these elements in my paintings and my glass art.
