Sanyu Glassworks Narumi Rainbow Sommerso Controlled Trails Statement Vase, 60s-70s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available exclusively for pickup at our Oakville location.
This majestically sculpted and handblown work of Japanese art glass is by the glassworks Sanyu, from the 'Narumi Fantasy' series that is characterised by its candy and jewel-like colour palette.
The form is superbly organic with 6 controlled trails of droplets creating a form that is like that of an abstract fountain. A very tactile piece, the curves and arches provide a beautiful prismatic ability. The colour palette of this series only contains the 3 colours of Tourmaline pink, Topaz blue and Citrine yellow and as these tones sweep up the sides of the vase, they are magnified and overlapped in the clear exterior casing creating many additional tones such as peach, green and purple.
There is a further layer of hidden magic within this piece that becomes apparent when it is placed in the pathway of sunlight and surrounding surfaces light up from the refractions.
The enchanting quality of the captured colours and the uniqueness of being handblown makes this statement piece suitable for display or functionally, as a simply accented Ikebana vase.
