They make great BookEnds Signed Livio Seguso, circa 1960. Italy, circa 1960. Born in Murano, Livio Seguso began his life-long affair with glass from a very early age, fascinated by the inexhaustible appeal of that wonderful medium. After having achieved an in-depth knowledge of the traditional glass making techniques, and stimulated by his strong artistic sensitivity, Seguso turned to plastic forms, and his research led him to explore with avid interest the world of the great masters of contemporary sculpture. Livio Seguso reached his full artistic maturity in the late 1970s, when he totally abandoned the Murano glass making heritage, however noble, and began to focus on clear crystal, changeable and ambiguous in its transparency, the perfect medium for the artist's uncontaminated imaginative vision. His sculptures manifest themselves in forms of absolute purity, non-mimetic and non-representational of anything, reaching out to seize the principle of a visible event that was undisclosed before that moment, and reveal the personality of the artist. His sculptures thus became Images of light that seem to adapt themselves to thought only to fade away into a series of oneiric forms.
