    I have been watching with interest and admiration the photos NASA publish from their inter-planetary travels and this lovely work reminds me of some of those images.

    This is by artist Chiyoji Asahara, of The Glass Studio in Otaru. It's not a large work at around 11cm diameter, but is so engaging.
    A clear ball with brown in the base, hollow blown, and the a blue trail added. Flat ground base.

      It's wonderful, so space age. You post such unusual glass, it's a pleasure to see.

      Ah! I love this too. Glad it's not on my desk tho, I'd have to keep spinning it! Like my little cast iron rocking chairs, keep on a-rockin'!
    16. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      Thanks Fran, that's a lovely thing to say!
    17. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago

      Very pretty Karen! Do you know if it was meant to look like a planet? Also, do you know what its purpose was?
    19. TheBigE253 TheBigE253, 2 years ago
      I see that you know a lot about glass artists from Japan and overseas. I've got this fish that I swear is signed Makoto or Mahoto or maybe Mafoto? its in my posts with yellow, red and green stripes and mouth squared wide open. Its awesome but the signature is weird. Would you take a look for me?
    20. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
      Karen, this is fantastically hypnotic!
      I too would spin it all day :-))
    21. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      Hi Rick. I don't know if it was meant to look like a planet, and as far as I know it's a "thing". I have a number of glass "things", all different, and all very thingish.
      Can't say more than that sorry!
