Description A blown glass vase from the 'Laguna' series by Japanese artist Yoichi Ohira, executed by Maestro Livio Serena of Murano, signed and dated on the underside.

Ohira, who was born in Tokyo, moved to Venice in 1973 to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti. There, he wrote a thesis entitled "The Aesthetics of Glass,” graduating in 1978 with the highest honors. By the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Ohira was collaborating with Murano glassblowers, and from 1993 through 2010 he partnered with Maestro Livio Serena. Ohira earned the "Premio Selezione" distinction from the Premio Murano in 1987.

Ohira’s work is represented in the permanent collections of several major museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, The Murano Glass Museum in Venice, Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, and The Corning Museum of Glass.
