Modernist Hand Blown Art Glass Vessel in Straw and Tourmaline by Vetro Vero

Estimated Production Time5-6 weeks

About

Voluminous, two-toned hand blown glass statement vessel features pale amber straw and blue-green tourmaline translucent hues. A speckled gold leaf seam emphasizes the shoulder. The Goccia (Italian: "drop") Collection is named for the voluminous teardrop forms that define this series of modernist vases. Ideal for interior decor and designed to capture the process of creation, each of two colors are shaped as preliminary glass bubbles, then carefully opened and fused at the gold-flecked seam early in the glassblowing process. Shaping follows, as Vetro Vero designers and glassblowers Michael Schunke and Josie Gluck heat and sculpt each individual vessel. Inflated and stretched into graceful "drop" forms, each Goccia vessel captures the action of its creation. Each piece is a made-to-order work of art, and hand blown in America without the use of molds. Subtle variations in color and size reflect the handmade process. Approximate dimensions: 8" x 16". Offered in straw and tourmaline.
