Gen Masunaga
[Lampwork Glass Artist, Ph.D. (Science)]  – in Okinawa, Japan

  In 2008, I started to make glass beads in earnest as a glass artist. My previous job was a biologist, and I researched on a ecology of sea snakes and coral reef community until 2007.  I want to tell future generations to express the charm of the wonderful wildlife in glass beads. Also, taking the nature photographs is my life’s work.
