Romano Dona, Three Discs Sculpture, Black Base Cobalt Gold Centre with Sommerso

About

***special blackfriday sale at $4000*** Colorful and heavy sculpture made of three solid discs stacked over a massiccio black glass oval base. Each disc is made with a cobalt centre rolled with pure gold leaf and iridescence. Than the glass is Sommerso (the right technical name is sbruffi) with clear glass and a rim of faded cobalt. A great sculpture that carries the history of massiccio, the maker comes from Livio Seguso factory where this technique was mostly used in gray or just iridescence. When become independent the use of colors expanded the creativity and made new vibrant beautiful masterpieces. The lens effect makes the color move when passing by. This sculpture will find it's best place in your home next to a window or a source of light. Probably from the late 90s. Probably Romano Dona hand showing Livio Seguso heritage. One note on the Sommerso technique. This layering of glass is commonly called Sommerso. It's so used that I have ended up using it for research and clear explanation. The real name for this technique is sbruffi. Sommerso is when the glass is covered by different coating of lightly colored glass, the first color is submerged in the pot of the second color. There is no fading effect. Sbruffi is a different technique and much more difficult. Uses only clear Sommerso and the gaffer blows an intense colored glass over the first clear blob of glass covering it with a thin clear layer of glass. Sometimes Sommerso and sbruffi are used together but Sommerso is only the first layer. Discs are 32 cm diameter (lowest) 28 cm diameter (medium) and 24 cm diameter (tall). Width of discs is about 10 cm.
