From 1983 to present, his work was introduced in Asahi Modern Craft Fair and various Japanese glass art fairs.

Unlike other traditional and geometric Edo Kiriko designs, Akio Kurokawa’s cut glass work stays with the full value of quality and originality. Kurokawa once mentioned, “Cutting glass is not a big issue. The real issue is what kind of designs will I cut?” For Kurokawa, his design inspirations and ideas come from daily life outside of his atelier.
