Pieces made by our owner, Makiko Kamimura.
Punty’s owner, Makiko Kamimura, studied craftwork design at Musashino Art University Junior College, graduating in 1974. She started working in dyeing and weaving, but fell in love with glass after encountering blown glass. She opened the studio in Nikkō in the spring of 1999, and has continued her creative work while running the studio at the same time. The pieces shown here have been given high marks in solicited exhibitions and elsewhere.
