A few weeks ago I posted a little vase by Asahara and today I am showing the bowl that I purchased with it.
I love the colours of this; soft but almost intense, and an unusual combination. The trapped air and foil add interest and complexity without overdoing it.
Chiyoji Asahara is considered one of Japan's glass masters and has had a long and important career. He has been teaching glass arts since the early 1970s, and has works in many world museums. He worked at Sanyu Glass from 1969 until 1979, when he left to start his own studio at Otaru.
I'm happy to have this lovely piece to add to my collection from such a skilled and important artist from Japan.
Bowl diameter: 22cm
