The Unknown Story Behind Glass Studio TooS

The journey of Tsunehide Okamoto as a glass artist at Glass Studio TooS began with a single book that his father brought home one day.

The Beginning

From a young age, he had a keen interest in art and crafts. When he was in high school, his father gifted him a book called "The Notebook of Glass Craft." This book detailed various techniques and processes of glass art.Upon reading that book, he was instantly captivated by the art of glassmaking and immediately took action. During that summer vacation, he joined an intensive workshop at a glass studio, where he stayed and learned the craft. His immediate and enthusiastic response shows just how deeply he was enchanted by glass.

The book his father bought for Tsunehide Okamoto. He still treasures it to this day.

Even though a summer of learning wasn’t enough to fully master glass art, it was enough for him to decide to dedicate his life to this path. After graduating from high school in 1996, he moved to Tokyo and immersed himself in the study of glass art at the Tokyo Glass Art Institute for two years. He then completed courses at the Notojima Glass Studio and gained practical experience at glass studios in Otaru, Hokkaido, and Nikko, Tochigi.
In 2002, with a heart full of passion and a mind brimming with knowledge, he founded Glass Studio TooS.

The Next Chapter as Glass Studio TooS

Determined to establish his own studio, Tsunehide Okamoto embarked on a remarkable journey, joined by friends who came and went, each leaving their mark. Over the course of three months, with their unwavering support and hands that shaped dreams into reality, a furnace was born. Together, they breathed life into Glass Studio TooS, where Okamoto began crafting his masterpieces.

The glassblowing furnace he created with his friends over the course of three months still resides in his studio.

When I asked about the meaning behind "Glass Studio TooS," the owner shared a thoughtful reflection. He explained that "TooS" is a made-up word, intentionally crafted to be without a specific meaning. However, the inspiration came from his fondness for the word "too," as in "me too." By making it plural, he envisioned a sense of inclusivity, capturing the essence of "me too, you too, everyone too." It's a name that invites everyone to be part of the creative journey.Even before the founding of TooS, Okamoto had received several awards. However, his accomplishments grew significantly after the studio's inception. In 2003, he was honored with the Japan Art Achievement Award from the government. His works have also been donated to museums and graced the restaurants of renowned hotels.

Tsunehide Okamoto Creating Glass Pens

Among the various glass art techniques, Tsunehide Okamoto has mastered the art of blown glass. He is the only well-known artisan in Japan who uses this method to create glass pens. He began crafting glass pens around 2009, although for a time he primarily focused on creating sculptures and dishes. However, as the popularity of glass pens grew in Japan, he gradually increased his production of glass pens starting in 2015, eventually seeing them stocked in stationery stores nationwide.

One of the significant turning points in his career as a glass pen artisan came in 2021, when he launched a crowdfunding campaign. This initiative aimed to transform his glass studio, located in the hot spring town of Yunogo in Okayama Prefecture, from a shop focused on general glass art to one specializing in his now nationally popular glass pens.

His shop in Okayama Prefecture sells glass pens and ink, features notebooks from admired artisans, and displays his other glass artworks.

The initial goal of 2 million yen (approximately USD 13,000) was met within the first 20 minutes, with 200% funding achieved within two hours and an astounding 300% reached within a day. The sheer volume of orders for his glass pens, offered as rewards, meant that delivery times extended to over a year, a testament to their immense popularity. This overwhelming support allowed him to beautifully renovate both his studio and shop, attracting numerous fans who now flock to visit him.

The incredible support from fans and patrons has not only validated the unique artistry of Tsunehide Okamoto but also propelled Glass Studio TooS to new heights. Each glass pen he creates is a testament to his dedication and passion for the craft. Now, you have the opportunity to own a piece of this exceptional artistry and join a community that cherishes the beauty and skill of handmade glass pens.

Good Luck!
