Vase by Hisatoshi Iwata in a style I find really attractive with what seems to be broad brush strokes of colour through the glass.
The coloured layer is from a great aqua blue with what appears to be black glass lines which are actually a rich navy blue. The attractive thing is the edges of the lines clearly show the dark blue and the result is as if an artist has run a paint loaded brush around the vessel.
The lines are random but balanced, and the ribbed shape of the outer clear case makes the lines even more alive.
It's a pretty cool piece of glass and like much Japanese glass is sizable.
