About

Magnificent heart-shaped ruby red and crystal Sommerso glass Murano glass bowl or ashtray. This amazing piece was produced in Italy during the 1960s. This wonderful piece is a perfect blend of sinuous lines and colors of the Murano glass due to the mastery of the Sommerso technique. A perfect item for completing a midcentury-style living or dining room with its delicate lines. No major chipping, the only one is highlighted in red is an internal sign. The Sommerso technique was originally developed in the 1930s by Antonio Da Ross. Sommerso (Italian for "submerged") is the Murano glassmaking technique of creating two or more layers of contrasting glass without the colors mixing together. It is formed by dipping colored glass into molten glass of a different color, before blowing the glass into the required form. The outermost layer is often clear. During the 1950s the Sommerso style became world famous due to the work of Flavio Poli, artistic director of Seguso Vetri d'Arte. There have since been many other factories in the Murano region which have made pieces in this style, and as such it is difficult to be certain of the manufacturer without labels or signatures present. Other well known manufacturers that have produced glassware in the Sommerso style include Mandruzzato, Galliano Ferro, Formia, Oball, Arte Nuova and Luigi Onesto.
