This is a funky number from Sasaki's Craft Collection, a series of handmade pieces dated to the 1990s-2000s.
The Japanese seem to like a nice second gather on their vessels and the teal green here really gives colour and weight to the piece, and is very tactile.
I have yet to find out what the appendages are, but again they are a very Japanese thing. Maybe just a quirk; definitely kawaii.
What is it? Yeah, one of those (vase, sake bottle, fly catcher, aethetic item, artefact..........)
