Seattle's Jackson Pollock Is A She, She's From Japan, and She Works in Glass

Seattle doesn't have a Jackson Pollock.

Perhaps "Seattle's Jackson Pollock of glass"? Actually, that kinda sounds either like a Chihuly-lookin' tribute to Jackson Pollock, or a bald meth head.

Anthropologie? And you're comparing this to Hans Nemuth/Jackson Pollock?

Ha, anthro is a "company of artists," my left foot!

As long as she's not a "Blower of Light" like Dale Chihuly, I'm glad to know she's out there.

Beautifully filmed and edited, but the music is more conducive to a horror film soundtrack. Bad fit.

That's mighty fancy glory hole footage.

(Also, no)

Fantastic! Congrats to Etsuko!

My "problem" with her work is that without the narrative about how it's created it seems unimpressive, except perhaps in scale. The video of her creating is much more compelling than the finished product. Shouldn't the art she creates be able to stand on it's own?

@9 - No. It helps Anthropologie sell more schmatas, so it's all good.
