I am going to say again that the Japanese made and make glass in styles that I have seen from nowhere else. Not constrained by any style paradigms they have been inventive, and weird, and exciting - and that's one reason I love Japanese glass. It sure doesn't suit everyone, I get that, but I am constantly amazed and delighted by what they create.
I ask you, who else would make a vase like this? I guess the spatter is not that off the wall, but adding the ribbon is a master stroke of quirkiness that delights me.
Labeled Kamei, I am almost certain this was made by Hokuyo Glass.
