About 3 years ago I excitedly found my first piece of Iwata Glass, and since then I have accumulated quite a bit more. Ahem.
Moving on.... I bought this one for two main reasons;
1. It is very similar to that first vase, so brings me full circle, and
2. It has orange as the contrast colour, which is unusual for this period of Iwata. Usually he used yellow, blue, or pink on the white base.
I love orange so this was an interesting and attractive acquisition for me.
It has such a free and creative style, and really shows Iwata's difference, and why he had such a profound effect on Japanese glass.
Made early 1950s. Height: 18cm
