Tsugaru Vidro is one of Japan's larger art glass makers, based in the Aomori prefecture in the far north of Honshu. Glass from this region is recognisable by it's style and is often identified as northern glass.
It is generally glass with quite busy yet delicate decor, and generally will have some sort of surface finish or additions such as handles.
This vase started with a red base, to which has been added green, white, blue and black. Gold sheet has been laid on some parts and the vase has been clear cased. A final flourish has been added with clear little scroll handles.
Tsugaru Vidro glass is often tagged as Tsugaru beauty idro by the Japanese, and their work is often incredibly beautiful.
This vase is actually rather gorgeous, and despite it's 27cm height feels small and unobtrusive.
