A cone shaped paperweight by Yataka Mizuno with a similar alien jelly fish design in a stunning blue. Better known for his partnership with his wife Setsuko Ogishi who is the principal glass artist and Yataka assisting her in the studio however there is the occasion when he is able to create the odd piece of glass. His work is exceedingly rare plus he signed this piece for me with his own name and not the studio’s jokingly saying that this piece will be worth a fortune in the future.
The design within this unusual cone shaped paperweight looks like some alien jelly fish with it’s tendrils seemingly floating in space. It was created by Yataka Mizuno who is the husband of the well known Setsuko Ogishi and indeed the studio also bears his name.
