    I love Ueno's glass and have posted some before, but his work has been harder to find lately, and what there is has gone up in price. I was pretty happy to find this vase.

    It is typical of Ueno's craft in that the apparently simple shape has been worked to a large degree to finish the design. The ovoid shape has a hand finished lip, and the almost organic mix of colours have been laid in a very striated design. After blowing, the piece has been battuto ground, in long parallel, vertical grooves. The whole has been sand blasted to finish.

    It is a sizeable piece at 28cm, and quite thick walled.

    Ueno has a very long history with a number of Japan's larger glass houses, but has been in his own studio for about 20 years now. I think this work shows his creative style well.

      Peggy you have such a beautiful and creative imagination. Yes, I can see that!
    12. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      Thanks Fran. Japanese art glass is certainly not mainstream; in style or availability!
    13. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      Like Peggy you have a great imagination Malkey, and you are both offering great images to me. I may now call this my Ueno Landscape.

      Many thanks VintageLamp, glad you like it.

      I'm pretty happy with it Kevin. Ueno is a class artist I think, and the battuto is a great touch on this one. Thanks for the comment, catch up at the markets soon!

      I LOVE IT KAREN! This pretty much covers it all... the oblong shape, the beautiful transitioning colors, the finished rim, the light-handed grinding and the sandblasted finish. Fabulous piece of glass! One of my favorites that you've posted!
