Typically for Japanese 1960s glass this vase is a tad large and heavy.
Labeled ArtGlass, it has been made from a dull red glass with green, yellow, crimson and black glass overlay.
I love the way they have manipulated the glass so the exterior looks painted.
The whole thing has a very thick casing of clear.
This style was very popular in Japan for a while and most of the bigger glass works produced vases in this style.
However these ArtGlass vases have a very particular "look" that gives them a pop art graphic feel.
The primary coloured vase in the third photo is in another post.
This vase here is 36cm (14in) and weighs 4.2kgs (yep!)
