    A classic Iwata bowl from the 1960s, showing his freeform shape and mix of white and clear with a coloured contrast on the rim.

    My first Iwata was a similar bowl to this but with a yellow contrast, and that bowl still remains a favourite.

    This pink is calmer and prettier and retains that sense of artist effort that comes with obviously hand made things.

    Diameter 20cm Height 20cm

      I think Freud would have a field day with this one. I see a jelly fish floating silently through the deep, black depths of the ocean. [;>)

      Looks like the splash you get from tossing a pebble into a calm pool of water. :)

      Thanks nice to have you back.

      Dean - for some Iwata is the ultimate in Japanese glass; he was the first true glass artist. I'm glad you like it. Maybe you have started the paradigm shift!

      Thanks Windwalker. This could fit well in your organic environment.

      Oh my God, I think I'm dying. I think you've just killed me, Karen.

      This. Is. Heavenly. I just couldn't love it more. Wow. Wow.

      I gotta rest. ;)

      Thanks babe! I hope you have air con there, here its pretty hot! We are having the mildest winter ever here with huge rain now after drought. The planet is literally f$&%#$.

      Yes, my friend, it is. We can only hope science will save our skins, as we human beings are too self-centered and interested in our pleasure and comfort in the moment to think and act long term.

      As for the weather, Palm Springs 113. Death Valley 123. A bit toasty. :P
