Tall Murano Vase with Hot Glass Colors Applied in the Manner of Gae Aulenti

$2,185.02

About

Striking heavy glass with decoration called sbruffi. This decoration is the same that is used to do Sommerso vase. This requires a team of two blowers. One holding the glass vase and the other blowing on it another glass of a different color. The difference here is that the glass is applied roughly and overlapping colors and the bubble of glass with the color broken. The glass is then heated to smooth all the corners. The result is a beautiful surface that resemble the moon surface. This well known technique was used and made famous to the public by Gae Aulenti with the Geacolor for Venini. The technique was not invented then and there has been various makers doing this. It was very popular during the 1980s because of the uneven surface that resembled the ceramic raku finish made popular by Pottery movement just started. Unknown origin, beautiful vessel, perfect color combination.
