This is such a beautiful and interesting piece of glass.
Created by Kurata Glass at their current Tsukiyono Studio it shows the freedom allowed the glass artists there.
White glass blown into a sphere has been given a very Kurata metallic treatment of varying density before being lightly clear cased. The lip has been hot worked: cut, folded, flared.
It has no purpose although would perfectly suit ikebana. I have lately been placing a candle inside which results in a beautiful glowing shell.
About 25cm diameter.
