Although quite imposing this vase has a calmness to it, and to me could never be mistaken for anything but Japanese made.
Blown in a very traditional flask shape it has been placed on a pedestal base.
The two blues have been freely mixed in the white glass and gold leaf has been laid after blowing. The whole vase has been sand blasted to finish.
I can imagine the glass maker giving this a name like "Slow Water" or "the Quiet Stream" - it has a very relaxing aura.
Like much Japanese glass the maker did not sign this piece and it unfortunately came without it's box so I have no identification for it.
It looks in style similar to some work by Jun Fujita, son of master glass artist Kyohei Fujita, but I am not sure of that attribution.
