    A really cool vase from the great glass master Iwata Kuri.
    The base glass is an interesting shade of brownish red, with a touch of tangerine. Over that spattered lines of silver with black specks have been added. Four black curled prunts have been placed above the swell of the body, and the whole has been sand blasted to give a matte finish.
    So different, so Japanese, so wonderful.

      Love the shape and colors Karen. Why do the Japanese seem to make everything look so delectable ...it's like marzipan ! :)

      Peggy, you nailed it too. Thanks.
      When I look at some Japanese glass I see a relationship with early Czech glass, not surprising at all considering the influence the Czechs had generally. I'm glad you enjoy the Japanese interpretation.

      Thanks Pascale. It's always interesting to see the way Japanese do things, and in glass it means different!

      Hey mama!!! Miss the heck outta you!!! Last weekend, I watched something on some learning channel about Japanese makers and guess what, I can't remember but one thing about it atm...and that would be that I kept thinking about you!!! haha

      I'll remember one day so don't be surprised when out of the blue I come up with it and make the comment that will see out of nowhere!!! But that's me and that's what I do.

      (been having a time trying to keep miss daisies pressure low, it was 198 over 90 the other day. Surprised she's still here!!!)
    14. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      Keep the pressure down! Please!
      I though of you the other day too. This skinny (!) American native woman was on a local show about food and she was happy, excitable and cool. See? You!!
