Today we are exploring the work of glass bead artist Ikuyo Yamanka of Coquitlam, British Columbia. Ikuyo is known for her use of murrini. She makes her own flower murrini and sells tutorials to enable other glassers to do it too. Ikuyo uses the petal motif in larger designs such as the free form piece in the first photo and the round bead in the last. Natural looking flowers are a constant theme for Ikuyo, as well as the use of silvered glasses.
