    This exquisite vase features Inside Glass Painting of a Moon (flower and bird) design inspired by a woodblock print from Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) held in the British Museum Prints and Drawings collection.

    The leading landscape artist of the 'Ukiyoe' school, Hiroshige started producing landscape prints in the early 1830s, establishing his own unique style with the series 'Famous Places in Edo' (Ichiyusai signature) and 'Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Highway' of 1832-3. He continued to excel at views of famous places throughout his career and managed to express in great detail the poetic sensibility inherent in the climate and topography of Japan and the people who lived there. Hiroshige also designed many masterpieces in the genre of bird and flower prints, once again creating a world where poetry and painting combined.

    Jacarte is passionate about the art of Inside Glass Painting. Combining rare traditional skills with neoclassic and contemporary design is the cornerstone of our creative process. The results are wondrous works of fine art. Each piece is hand sculpted from optical crystal glass and meticulously painted with a very fine brush. Each has a legend, myth, or inspirational thought behind its conception.
