My brain is fried - I'm finding too many previously unknown-to-me glass makers from Japan.
This is a nicely made vase, typical baluster shape, made from white glass with a lovely opalescent sheen to it.
The inclusion of the blue/red mix stripe through the body lifts this I think, and I love that it is not perfectly level or parallel.
It has been thinly clear cased but like most Japanese glass is fairly thick so quite heavy.
I have only recently found one other Kimura Glass vase, same shape and white ground, but without the central stripe. As you might imagine, it was a bit plain for me.
