Delicately placed opals surrounded by dazzling swirls and flecks of gold become tiny universes in Satoshi Tamizu’s intricate glasswork. Called Space Glass, Tamizu’s tiny pendants shrink the wonder of the galaxy into a comprehendible form without taking away from its grandeur.

He began honing his skills at the age of 28. Now a skilled glassworker, Tamizu’s timeless pieces with heat resistant glass form part of some the most unique jewellery items around.
