    A recent arrival, I was pretty happy when this arrived to see how good the box was and to find the vase in it's original Sasaki printed tissue paper.

    From the look of it the vase has been moulded in blue with a green case, and post moulding has been ground all over.
    The raised sections are nicely matte with the lower areas gloss and it really makes the pattern live.
    Top edge and base are polished.

    The sticker style dates this to the 1970s.
    It's a nice lump of glass at 20cm high and 11cm square.
    Weight 1.2kg

      OMG, such a beautiful piece, and with the original box, again, wow.

      Love the way green interfuses blue.This is another Japanese vase that evokes water associations.They're islanders though...

      Very organic karen !! Love it and the colors !!
    5. NevadaBlades, 5 years ago
      Looks great, Karen. Some loose Calla Lilies would look nice in this vase, I think. [;>)

      This plays to what we were saying about how when a style is fashionable everyone produces their take on it. That said this a really outstanding version of the heavy geometric vases of the 70's. What's exceptional here is the texture. Stunning!

      Very cool looking 70's piece even from across the pond. Then there is the tissue paper and BOX!! ;) Good one!!
      Hope your sleep fest is/was a good one. :)
      This is really pretty Karen.
      I really want to mess with you and ask if it is Chinese or Japanese but I wouldn't do that to you. :);)

      Of course you know I LOVE this Karen!!! As with Battuto, I love the haziness of the vase - which the artist contrasted so beautifully with the clear "windows"! I also love the transition of green to blue, and ( surprisingly for me ) the shape, which really works on this piece! Amazing "lump" of glass!

      Scott, thank you. Glad you like it!
    10. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Alan the box was good to get, and it's quite funny how excited I got about the tissue paper! Thanks for thelove and comment.
    11. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      That's very true Ivonne, they do seem to often head to watery decor. This is like a coral shoal I think. Thanks as usual.
    12. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thanks Rose. The colours are gorgeous, and a favourite combo for the Japanese at this time.
    13. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Yeah I can see that KJ. I'll go shopping (there are none in my garden :( )
    14. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Great comment Peggy and thanks for it and the love.
      I actually have some vases not too dis-similar to this by Hoya, but all in clear, and I can see the referencing to the Scandis and Germans of this period. The Japanese differ by size (BIG) and they love colour.
    15. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      LOL OGF - pull my leg as much as you like!
      Thanks for the love for my vase, and yes, the sleep fest was awesome:))
    16. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Thanks for your critical eye Rick. I think the shape works well here as you say; the rest is busy enough. The Japanese love surface texture (including battuto) and this is probably a cheaper way of getting it. It's well done!

      So beautiful... Dynamic and zen!
    18. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      Zen I can live with that! Thanks Kyra :)

      Just look at that incredible piece of glass. All the elements of water, rain, mist, ice, blue, green. So refreshing. You can almost drink this glass, wash your hands in this water, it's a spring, a lake, a burbling stream, a misty window. Wow. Now please don't take this wrong, but like so many of your pieces, I want this glass!!!

      This is why I love coming to your page, Karen. You really capture the spirit of the piece in your photographs. Stunning, thanks for sharing. :)

      Thanks My Biggest Fan!
      It's a gorgeous piece and it's great to have found it. I've added it to the pile :)
    21. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 5 years ago
      Oh God, your glass pile ... I can hear it, you know.

      Seriously, this glass is so so glorious. In the first photo, the glass appears to be weeping, as if rain were sliding down a window. You have that eye, Karen, you know what art is, and how to find it when you take the picture.

      I bow, I bow.

      I blush, I blush.

      thanks Babe :)
