At first glance, this handblown beautiful piece appears to be the Czech Josef Hospodka abstract tulip vase, however, the difference in the detail is there, all of which will tell you this is Japanese Art Glass. The petals at the rim are curled into themselves and the body of the 'tulip' is more slender.
The colour palette begins as an edge of sage green which surrounds the core of deep Tangerine amber, the amber flows seamlessly into the hot pink before the finishing of the clear casing on the exterior.
To bring out the hidden magic in this piece, place the vase in the pathway of sunlight and watch the surfaces light up with deep amber orange and pinks from the refractions thrown.
A BIT OF HISTORY
The quality of Japanese art glass during the 1950s to the 1970s rivalled that of Murano, Scandinavian, and Czech glass production, however, recognition was relatively low and most pieces imported into the Western market were often simply marked with the word 'Foreign' or not at all. It is rare to discover pieces with the original glassworks or importing company's label.
