I think this style of vase is instantly recognisable as Japanese by just about everyone. It was a common style in the 50s and 60s and many versions were exported West.
These two are by UGS and carry design cues similar with other brands.
A coloured glass (often very bright) has been mixed with white slag glass and then clear cased. The form is generally moulded in the base and then hot worked toward the rim which is always free form.
Not everyone's style and quite dated now but this was relatively cheap and cheerful hand made glass.
BTW - I know very little about UGS. Cough up what you know please :)
