    Midori was a range of glass designed by Hisatoshi Iwata, c1980. Some of this range became an Iwata Studio line, although I believe this piece to be an artist's work.
    Midori means green (or greenery) in Japanese and Iwata used this green decor on a number of different shaped vessels.
    This flask shaped vase is typical of Midori, with a quite simple shape to highlight the decor. The underlying glass is a light green with very fine spatter of a beautiful turquoise and mid blue heavily applied. As was the fashion with Iwata during this period, gold foil squares have been applied on the front of the vase.
    It's a quite organic style of glass; very restful.
    Height: 18cm

      Midori the drink is for the uneducated, this glass is for the art lover. Thanks Vet!

      You are so right Ken, bursting, and so some ends up in boxes and then I can't appreciate the beauty. A tragedy of my own making.
      Thanks for loving this one, which is currently unboxed :)

      It must be a great room Thomas; a very creative colour. Thanks mate :)

      Wow, you have lots of cool and interesting glass. Do you display them altogether?
    14. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      I do have lots MrsT, lots in boxes, and about a third on display at the moment.
      I do try and change them around but the number is now overwhelming. I am a glass collecting addict, and I need intervention. There: said it! lol.
