Gocce di Luce model sculpture lamp by Alfredo Barbini, Murano Glass, Italy



Murano glass sculpture lamp, Gocce di Luce model, designed and produced by Alfredo Barbini, circa 1980. Signed and with two original labels. Biography Alfredo Barbini (1912-2007) one of the greatest Murano glass artists of the 20th century. He learned the traditional techniques of glass blowing during his adolescence as an apprentice at the Franchetti Crystals and at SAIAR Ferro Toso. He then worked in the Zecchin-Martinuzzi Furnace alongside the sculptor Napoleone Martinuzzi, the collaboration lasted from 1932-1936 creating the first solid glass sculptures designed by Martinuzzi, this experience will be fundamental for his artistic training. After the closure of the factory, he became a first-rate teacher at the V.A.M.S.A. (Murano Artistic Glass Company, Anonymous Society). Here, too, his contribution in the field of glass sculpture is remarkable, and in that of thick materials, with particular chromatic effects, such as the so-called “smoked glass”. He carries out works based on drawings by the painter Luigi Scarpa Croce, including the plate with fish presented at the Venice Biennale in 1942. Subsequently in 1946 he becomes artistic director of the Gino Cenedese factory until 1950 where he opens his own factory, the Vetreria Alfredo Barbini and he can experiment his creativity freely and he can already be seen at the XXX Venice Biennale in 1960 with the submerged glass series of fish, tulips, figures modeled on a single block with layers of glass of different tones and shades. Brilliant glass artist will continue the search for him flanked by his children.
