Filming with Kazuki Takizawa for the Craft Video Dictionary
Hello, it’s Sophia here, the 2022 Getty Marrow Undergraduate Intern at Craft in America. Craft in America is working on creating a Craft Video Dictionary that will be released in 2023. Craft has had a long history, and therefore there are many techniques and terms used in each medium. The Craft Video Dictionary aims to build a centralized source for artists and art enthusiasts to learn about each craft technique, through video, in order to create a dictionary of informational content.
I had a behind the scenes experience watching glass artist Kazuki Takizawa and his assistant Deshon Tyau’s creative process during the filming of this project… I must say, I now have the highest respect for glass artists seeing how labor intensive and technical the whole process is, and especially all while having to work in a really warm environment.
The Craft Video Dictionary is supported by the Decorative Arts Trust’ Prize for Excellence and Innovation. To learn more about the Trust or to become a member, visit The Decorative Arts Trust. Nominations are due 6/30/22.
