    This great piece from Iwata recently arrived from Japan.
    I think it dates to the 1980s or so, and I don't know who would have designed it.
    It's made from a dark blue glass cased in clear, made into a flat slab and rolled. During production it has had clear glass balls inserted into the glass so the light shines through like stars on a velvety sky.
    It's about 30cm tall

      Gorgeous & unique blue lamp, love those little glass balls they definitely have a starlight appearance when lit & give a mysterious quality

      That is just super cool...

      That's a great lamp, when lit up it looks like a little slice of a galaxy complete with stars and a moon, it's very mystical and would look perfect in someplace like Nostradamus or Galileo's modern attic apartment (if either had one!) :P

      Hey thanks Jenni! The balls make it really, and even unlit they highlight the whole piece.
      It’s an interesting a different piece of Japanese glass.

      Suit you then Marin!
      I mean that.

      Of course I don’t have one of them Lauren but I get the vibe.
      It will have to stay here with us in this daggy 70s house and show us up and allow us to dream lol.
      Thanks :))

      Thanks so much, my dear friend...
      Your 70s home vibes could be rather appropriate for a spaced - out piece like this...
    8. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      Wonderful ingenious piece, I love the creativity it displays!
    9. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago

      Thanks Lisa, it is a quite simple piece that shows how glass can work in lots of ways.
      Thanks for your love.

      What a primo lamp!
      Light it up and wait until dark, then the show begins!
      My Son ( who loves all things Japanese) would flip over this amazing light!
