Aya Oki is a Japanese artist based in San Bernardino, California.
Her technique of glass blowing is intended to express the true charm of glass. Her personal
approach is born during the conversation she has while interacting with each piece. Her work is
created out of her desire to convey the real pleasure of blown bubbles and the sensual and
unique moment when the material swells from inside to outside into its final form.
Aya completed her undergraduate and master’s degrees in glass at the Aichi University of
Education, Japan and was awarded the Grants for Overseas Study by Young Artists from the
Pola Art Foundation and the Program of Overseas Study for Upcoming Artists from the Agency
for Cultural Affairs in Japan for studying abroad as a researching artist.
Her dream of studying abroad in the States lead her to go to California State University, San
Bernardino before completing her MFA at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2014. Since
then, she has been traveling the world as an artist and an educator.
