    A large vase from Kurata spattered to give it a landscape look.
    The ground is coloured from white at the base to pale blue at the neck, and it has been spattered with browns, blues and greens heavily at the base and reducing through the body. Silver metal has been freely scattered over the top, and it has then been sandblasted.

    The result is a soft, almost impressionistic scene. It's very Zen.

      What a wonderful vase Karen! What really thrills me is the soft colors and smooth, opaque finish! Like Rosie said, by using the sandblasting technique, it reminds me a little bit of Murano Scavo Glass :-)

      Inky my knowledge of French glass would be around the zero mark so I take your word for it. Thanks mate.

      I know the series you mean Peggy. They too were landscape pieces.
    22. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Kurata have a liking for sandblasted finishes Rick, and I think they have mastered the colours under it to maintain beauty. Thanks for your insightful comments.
