Tsugaru Vidro is one of the larger glass houses still producing hand made glass in Japan today.
This vase is not in their current production although is relatively recent.
On a white ground they have spattered and dragged green, blue and black glass and blown it into a traditional shape.
I really like the subtlety of the finished pattern and find it interesting and restful.
The rim has been pulled to make a very square frilled edge that is a signature for Tsugaru Vidro.
Unlike vintage Japanese glass this more recent production is not cased and so is much thinner walled and lighter.
