    Japanese of course: big, different, colourful, and lots of gold.

    Shinichi Muro was born in 1949 and joined Joetsu Crystal (Kurata Glass) in 1973 after graduating from Kanazawa College of Art.

    A multi prize winning glass maker, his work is held in many museums worldwide, including Corning Glass Museum and Ebel Toft Glass Museum Denmark.

    Joetsu as a glass house has a long history of letting their artists make individual works in parallel with designing and making for the company.
    I have said before they are one of my favourite Japanese producers and that has been because the company has attracted and kept top level glass craftsmen - Muro is one of many.

    This large vase has been made in a very unusual shape with tapering, concave sides and a very Japanese small neck. The gold and coloured additions reminds me of a river bed, although I am not sure what the additional and asymmetrical fins are for! Cool anyway.

    Height 24cm (9.5in) width 26cm (10.5in) weight 3.8kg

      I love abstract landscapes as an art form....and this is about as good as they come..... and in glass too. Perhaps your finest piece.....
    3. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      A striking piece, could get lost for hours in its landscape and colours !
    4. mikelv85 mikelv85, 7 years ago
      I agree with Vet and Sklo Karen. This piece has got it all going on. Impressive !
    5. Ivonne Ivonne, 7 years ago
      A masterpiece joining an artistic vision with precise accomplishment!
      The rippled top is like a wavy surface of a river.

      Well strangely enough, this one doesn't do it for me. I get the metaphorical work but it just doesn't grab my feels. Hmm, will have to contemplate it some more, I guess. :/

      I am surprised at how much reaction this vase has triggered.
      I can't thank you all enough for not just looking but commenting too.
      Katherine - it's cool you don't get it.....that is what art is like! Thanks for being honest enough to say so and I am never offended by personal taste (unless it's Walmart style).

      Thanks for the love and comments guys. I have now named this vase river landscape in your honour.
      Big thanks to:
      Elisabeth and
