Kazumi Ohno is a Japanese glass artist.
Her work is inspired by a wide range of objects and the world around her including, but not limited to memory, and old things. In her childhood she loved to play with toys and she collected treasures carefully. She no longer has these treasures but holds them in her memory. She cherishes these memories and they influence her current work.
She graduated from Toyama City Institute of Glass Art in Japan. The Glass Certification Studies Program 2014, and The Advanced Research Studies program 2016. She has been awarded a Bodil Busk Laursen Prize in The International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa. She currently lives and works in Saitama, Japan.
