Delphi Customer at Japan's First Major Art Festival

Vincent Pernicano Lansing, MI (December 14, 2009) - Artisan and long time Delphi Glass customer Vincent Pernicano has recently returned home after participating in Yokohama International Art Fair. This event is believed to be Japan's first major open-air art festival.

Traditionally fine art in Japan is available through private galleries, not large, outdoor events like the one that took place in Yokohama. The festival is thought to be the first of its kind. Twenty-seven artists were in attendance, including glass artist Vince Pernicano.

"[In Japan] occasionally there are small craft fairs in different locations but no art fairs," explains Pernicano. He goes on to say that the turnout was exceptional and that the people seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely. "I think that given a few years art fairs could become as common there as they are here," he adds.

Vince Pernicano was the only glass artist invited to Yokohama. The director for the show, Midori Ueda-Okahana, personally asked him to attend after seeing some of his work. Pernicano's technique involves combining glass with fine metals and paints. Often he blends fusible glass with frit, enamels and dichroic jewels he creates himself. He is best known for his jewelry, glass sculptures, and fused panels augmented with his own paintings.

Even though Pernicano lives and works in a small community in Northern Michigan, his art has received international attention before. As an accomplished artist and studio owner of 40 years, his art has been purchased by people across the country and from other parts of the world. The artist also won the 2009 Delphi Art Glass Festival Online Competition last May, which attracted entries from countries as far away as Australia.

"I am inspired in all my work by nature, life experiences and observations," says Pernicano.
