Mizore Vase

BY  Naoya Arakawa

$2,500 USD

Distinguished by its swirling, frosty finish, achieved by coating the surface of the vessel in layers of molten glass, Naoya Arakawa’s Mizore Vase captures the flurrying fall of sleet in masterfully hand-blown glass.

Renowned for forging glass with the qualities of water, Naoya Arakawa draws endless inspiration from nature, especially from a stream near his workshop in Kyoto, Japan. Using traditional Japanese techniques he has been honing for more than 40 years—along with his own, bespoke formulas of sand and other natural materials—he hand-blows glass vessels meant to reflect the landscape around him, shifting and shimmering in the changing light.
