Another piece from Kitaichi, this a beautifully made work of unusual shape and design (but somehow still very Japanese).
A very pale ground has been striped with blue, burgundy, teal green, and gold, with intense gold striping in the top section. The shape is sensuous, with a voluptuous squeeze through the body at the 3/4 point.
I have yet to identify the artists working at Kitaichi and did not receive any information with this beautiful piece. I would not have thought it Kitaichi without the label, although they do make beautiful glass and I am not up to speed with all of their output. I'm happy to know the Glass House at least.
I have dulled the first photo down a bit so the shape can be clearly seen.
