This outstanding work of mid-century handblown art glass is of Japanese art glass design and by the well known Japanese glassworks of Iwatsu who were known to have produced art glass under the labels of Hineri and Art Glass.

There is an air of graceful elegance in the form of this piece and has accents that are similar to a dish from the Fantasy series by another well known Japanese art glass studio Sanyu. The form of the main body proudly displays the evenly curved and organically shaped segments which alternate between curling and unfurling. The palette of this piece is a combination of Raspberry pink, Grape purple, Blueberries and Blueberry Soda blue. The colour palette combined with the form makes this piece a rare find.

CONDITION
Excellent. No chips or cracks or repairs, the most considerable age-wear are movement marks and flakes that are on the underside of the base and are commensurable with age.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Iwatsu Glassworks
Unfortunately, little is known about Iwatsu despite being one of the largest glassmakers in Japan, the commonly cited and understood reason is due to language barriers. However, Iwatsu is deemed to have produced art glass under the Hineri and Art Glass labels before closing in the 1990s. Iwatsu were known to have been based in Osaka in Japan, producing colourful art glass during the 1970s. The quality and style of their work rivalled and is often mistaken for, Italian Murano glass and Czech glass from the same period.
