    When I first saw the photo of this vase I fell in love.
    When my partner first saw the photo of this vase he said it looked like someone had vomited glass.
    Thing is, I sort of know where he's coming from.
    I still love it.

    I'm not going to go into technique here, I'll just let you look at it.

    All comments welcome, whether you like it or not.
    I think it's going to be a love it : hate it piece.

      Looks like melted ribbon candy or taffy. Hideously delicious ! :)
    2. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Lol Mike! Well said.
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Well....I think it's colorfully spectacular! Yes, I agree with Mike in that it looks like melted taffy ribbons.
    4. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Gracefully left comment Ken - I appreciate your feedback! (I mean that, I fully expect it not to appeal to everyone)
    5. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thanks Bonnie. Colourfully spectacular hey!
    6. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      GLORIOUS, GORGEOUS, GOO !!!
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Sensory overload :)
    8. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      LOL...........agree with Mike it looks like **melted ribbon candy or taffy**

      .......and v~e~r~y different looking.
    9. Deano Deano, 5 years ago
      I just fell over. So cool. Love everything about it. Looks kinda like the old candles from the 70's.
    10. freiheit freiheit, 5 years ago
      Mikel said it: Looks like candy!!! I really like it!
    11. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 5 years ago
      It's glorious, like a glass Jackson Pollock! Better! :)
    12. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Love the posts about different taste - it looks like taffy and it looks like 1970's candle! Also looks like "end of day" effort - and why not? And also like Jackson Pollock! Falls into my category of "wow this is so different, not my taste, great & ugly - I love it!" It would look pretty darn bitchin on a rough grey driftwood fireplace mantel w/Jackson Pollock (or someone) hanging above
    13. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      Yes like those vintage 1970's carved Candles:

    15. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thanks Kevin. Differently delightful and very Japanese.
    16. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago

    19. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Katherine I hereby call this my Poroka vase...thanks for the idea!
    20. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Beautiful ugly Valentino, aka fugly, jolie laide, or just special.
      Thanks for the lurve. I don't have a fireplace but this vase may require me change houses so I do!
    21. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago

    25. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Lisa your comment made ME smile! Thanks. Unique certainly, and it is still amazing me.
      Ahhh - the Japanese! Like no other.
    26. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thank you Ivonne - lovely of you to comment.
    27. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Oh my goodness racer.......I have never seen anything like this before!!!!!! but it could grow on me I think!
    28. Vladimir Vladimir, 5 years ago
      Great vase Karen!
    29. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Tassie Devil I can hear your amazement lol.
      After collecting Japanese glass for a while I am inured to the weird and almost expect it, and also expect not everyone likes things as I have learnt to do. It takes training! You might get there some day!...many thanks.
    30. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Great to hear from you Vlad...many thanks.
    31. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 5 years ago
      You're so funny! I love all the colors and can't imagine the work that went into it.
    32. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thanks OGF - glad you appreciate the work in this. There is lots despite the result being messy and out there- that's so Japanese. Either like that, or all anal and perfect.
    33. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      LOL!!! Love this post. My first reaction was to leave the word "Vomit" and nothing else! But I couldn't do it. I had to throw the laughing in here too! Yep, I'm with him...VOMIT!
    34. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      hahahaha
    35. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Dear Ms Sue , I don't care if you want to share the passion or vomit at my glass. I do care when you laugh maniacally. You might choke and then I won't hear from you again. Regards, Ms Headthingy
    36. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      hahaha!!! I can't help it...
    37. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 8 months ago
      I wonder what the maker was on when they designed this?
      If you leave the “taffy” off, I believe there’s a beautiful vase underneath...
      Sorry Karen, we should all be honest, right?
    38. Newfld Newfld, 8 months ago
      A very special vase with a bounty of color, I can see why you love it - the mauve ribboning is gorgeous
    39. racer4four racer4four, 8 months ago
      LOL Eileen, as you can see by comments you would not be alone with your feelings regarding this one. Absolutely we should all be honest and I welcome opinions.
      Thanks for going through my old posts, it's fun for me to revisit!
    40. racer4four racer4four, 8 months ago
      Thanks Jennie! I still love it because it is so Japanese in it's creation, particularly relevant to the 60s when it was made.
      I love the ribbon too, it moves it from nice to extraordinary!
