This beautifully sculpted and handblown piece is the work of Japanese glassworks Sanyu and from the Narumi Fantasy glass candy-like coloured series.
The form is superbly organic with three points on either side of the central inward-folding points, making this piece very tactile and giving it a prismatic ability. The colour palette is seemingly simple, with small pools of Mandarin orange and Cerulean Blue which are suspended in the clear glass. However, the hidden magic in this piece is very apparent when it is placed in the pathway of sunlight and surfaces light up from the refractions thrown.
Superb. No chips or cracks or damage, There is mild wear, predominantly on the end of each point as well as movement marks on the underside of the base which is commensurate with age. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report.

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.
