I rarely see artist one-offs from Marti Glass (AKA Multi Glass), generally I see their hand made production lines. I was delighted to find this gorgeous bowl, and at a good price.
There is some great design and work in this bowl. The pattern within the bowl is a combination of small white glass lines and trapped air that have been stretched and moved as the bowl has been blown. The rim of added green glass is a perfect finish.
Unlike many of these Japanese glass bowls this one has not been given a foot, just ground over the pontil scar.
I think this is relatively contemporary although I don't know the date for it.
It came with it's artist's tomobako (co-box), so has been produced as a special artist edition.
I have no translation for the script so don't know who the artist is.
