    I have posted before some glass vases by Amemiya and here is another.
    I'm particularly taken with this one because it is in green hues; green glass body and primarily green enamel.
    The work by Amemiya is incredibly detailed and precise. If you look at the leaves of the grapevine you will see that they are made up of 2 greens and yellow, outlined in gold. The skill and time taken to paint these works are impressive.

    Amemiya had a workshop in Tokyo through the 1960s and 1970s and although he designed all of the works he had 3-4 other talented painters doing some of the enameling. The glass itself was possibly blown by Shotoku, and I know is was cut and finished by Horiguchi.

    This is world class enamel work and why Amemiya's work is not more collected I don't know. This vase measures 17cm.
    I'll get together some other Amemiya I haven't posted before and put it up sometime soon.

      It seems to have its own unique beauty, the green seems to have its own luminescence and sheen !~

      Thanks Peggy! I didn't give the Christmas vibe a thought because I think I'm in denial Christmas is here already! I might actually put some water in it and some NSW Christmas bush, a very cool plant with red bracts.

      I think this sort of work suits the Japanese mind of detailed, creative, handwork which is why it's so well done. Great comment thanks Jenni.

      Hi Ivonne! Lovely to hear from you.
      The enamel is very thick in places which does give it an embossed look.
