    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.

      I love the asymmetry and use of negative space - very cool!
    10. NevadaBlades, 5 years ago
      Yes, I can see this being used for IKEBANA. It's really beautiful, Karen. [;>)

      EXTRAORDINARY !!!
    12. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Thanks for the new photo!! It looks like it's "melting" now....like when hot wax folds in on itself when hollowed out. How very interesting.
    13. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 5 years ago
      This is great Karen. Bonnie is spot on as it looks like a melting candle with a candle in it. (it's a battery candle in there I hope). ;)

      Wow, such a beautiful and original piece... and a substantial size too!
    18. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Thanks for the love and comment Anik. This one lives on my dining table at present and is lit most nights.
      As far as size goes, most Japanese art glass is largish. The average vase I have would be around 25cm and heavy, at least 2kg. I have some as heavy as 6kg, and some as tall as 45cm. There is a reason and it is based on the particular place, in a traditional Japanese home, where art objects are placed for viewing.
      It makes my postage costs high!!
    19. Anik Anik, 4 years ago
      Fascinating. I didn't know that in Japanese culture, decorative objects such as glass, are larger for that reason. On the other hand, when I think about Japanese aesthetics, it makes sense.

      Sadly, no such aesthetics in my home... because of lack of space, glass of all shapes, colors, sizes and weight are packed onto shelves where the beauty of each is lost. Sigh.
    20. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      No such aesthetic here either! Crammed shelves, dust, boxes.........there is beauty amongst it somewhere.......
