Description A fused and blown murrine glass vase by Japanese artist Yoichi Ohira, in collaboration with Maestro Livio Serena, the vertically striated rounded red body interspersed throughout with circular and oblong accents of turquoise and clear glass.

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; A similar ‘Legno’ Vase was recently added to the permanent collection of The Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia (Accession no. 2016.40.29).
