    Hoya Crystal were one of the best at making exquisite crystal objects and in the 1980s and 1990s produced some truly incredible work.

    This dish was designed by Saburo Funakoshi to show ice forming on a lake.
    It has initially been moulded with a chunky, icy texture on the back, and then the bottom has been cut and polished to allow clear glass to show as the water.

    It is an incredible piece of art, and when I first received it I was blown away. I am still staring at it and picking it up. I wish you could too.

    If you see one of these, buy it! Beautiful art, and I think this museum series Hoya will just keep appreciating.

    Width 26cm weight 1.7kg

    Note: I have to admit I used pictures from someone else (the first two) because I didn't capture it well.

      That is really COOL! It does look like it's made of ice. I agree with Mike, it looks as though it could start melting at anytime!
