Born in 1956 in Fukuoka, Japan, Hiroshi Yamano has been working with glass for over 30 years. He has studied at prestigious schools throughout the US and Japan, such as California College of Arts and Crafts, Tokyo Glass Art Institute, and Rochester Institute of Technology where he received his Masters in Fine Arts.

Yamano’s list of exhibitions is as impressive as it is international. Venues include the United States, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, and Australia. He has received numerous awards, most notably in 1991, The Rakow Commission, an annual award presented to a leading glass artist, from The Corning Museum of Glass. The resulting piece was presented to the Corning Museum of Glass. His work appears in many collections, both public and private, including The Corning Museum of Glass in New York, the Wheaton Glass Museum in New Jersey, and the Chrysler Museum in Virginia. Hiroshi Yamano has been an integral part of a generation of artists who have transformed the glass vessel from a functional to a sculptural form. His vessels are glass canvases for his artistic expression, and in the creation of his work, he has transformed the craft of glass into art. Hiroshi Yamano has worked throughout the world as an instructor at the prestigious Pilchuck Glass School, and as a lecturer at The Glass Art Society conference in Mexico, The Aus Glass Conference in Australia, and the Vanersborg Glass Festival in Sweden. In 1998 he was invited to be a guest at Waterford Crystal in Ireland.
