I am so pleased to acquire this vase by the late Itoko Iwata. Although she produced glass right until her death in 2008, I have found her work difficult to source, particularly within my budget.
This vase has a very Japanese aesthetic; the shape, the kimono like pattern, and the almost silk like finish.
My take on it is that it has been created by using metal foil and stenciled and flashed coloured glass over a white base. I'm happy to hear other ideas about technique.
It's typically tall at 26cm, and arrived in it's original box with artist's bookmark.
Note: the photos aren't mine, they are the vendors, which are much better than my own efforts. I have noticed that the photos on Japanese auction and sales sites are usually very well done, even by amateurs.
