Noriko Tsuji

Born in Tokyo Japan in 1974, Noriko Tsuji received a BA degree at University of the Sacred Heart in Tokyo where she devoted herself to literature and social psychology. Upon graduation, an experience at a glass blowing studio made a significant impact and she has since been working with molten glass. Her move to New York in 2002 revolutionized her career and she began work as a sculptural artist. Her aesthetic pursuit is influenced by her cultural heritage and her glass designs reflect a personal sense of beauty and utility. Noriko is committed to the glass blowing process. In particular, she is fascinated by the variety of techniques and methods for glass as an artist material. As Noriko explains, "The working process with hot glass and my thought process are quite similar. Hot glass is fluid with possibility, able to take on any shape, but once the moment passes, it gets cold, static, and achieves immortality. Similarly, my thought upon inception is obscure, but through exploration, a clear picture emerges and remains in my heart forever." Noriko received a 2004 fellowship award from Metropolitan Contemporary Glass Group in New York and achieved awards in Japan. Her work has been shown in a number of solo and group exhibitions in New York and Japan. She has taught at Aya glass studio in Japan and currently teaches at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York.
