Loredano Rosin Massive Chalcedony Glass Sculpture of a Paperweight

$7,500

About

A fabulous Loredano Rosin signed massive and extremely heavy sculpture in the form of a paperweight. We have never seen a piece as unusual as this one from Dino Rosin. The chalcedony glass is quite spectacular and difficult to capture properly. I have added one photo, the last photographed without life, A little explanation of what chalcedony glass is from an excerpt from the book. The life and times of 17th century glassmaker Antonio Neri. One of the more exotic varieties of glass described in Antonio Neri’s book, L'Arte Vetraria, is chalcedony. It is also one of the most labour intensive, exacting recipes and consequently a 'high stakes' risk for losing the entire batch after considerable work. Nevertheless, Neri assures us that the end result is worth the trouble; he describes it as. Adorned with so many graceful and beautiful areas of undulations and enhanced with the play of diverse, lively, flaming colors.” Chalcedony is a natural mineral, known and admired since antiquity. It occurs in a variety of translucent colors and is most valued when swirls of many different colors are present together in the same piece.
