      Someone has mentioned it may be a Japanese or chinese piece, maybe.

      Wow! What a find! I'm jealous! :) I have a sculpture piece that I purchased at an antique shop a few months ago, which has the same sweeping colors as your piece. Wish I could add a picture in this comment but I don't see a place to do that. It looks like a stylized "eye" on a clear free-form base. Very heavy! About 15" tall...3" thick...and it has the identical coloring and style as your piece. I believe it is Murano...from the same artist...Possibly Seguso. I'm still researching my piece. If I find anything more definitive, I'll add another comment.

      I just posted my EYE sculpture under this SHOW & TELL section...If you want to go check it out. The bright colors cased within the clear glass, remind me of the piece you have. I have never seen any other pieces using this technique. It's as if the color is painted within the glass somehow with a flat brush. hmmmm...the mystery continues....

      I've been trying to find information on your vase, as well as my "Eye" sculpture. I stumbled onto a company called Novica. They offer a style of glass (hand blown) with similar coloring as yours...and they call it "Confetti" glass. I have since seen Tropical Confetti and Carnival Confetti, which basically describe the colors used. Yours looks like Carnival Confetti to me. It could be Murano glass (not really Millefiori, as that term means 1000 flowers)...and it's very possibly that your vase was made by the Seguso family, who were originally from Murano, Italy, but over the years have migrated to areas like China and Brazil. Anyway, if I had to guess, I would say this is Seguso (Brazil)...offered by Novica.com Hope this helps you in your search for information.
