This striking and vivid work of handblown, hot worked of mid-century art glass is by Murano, Vetro Artistico Veneziano. This piece brings with it a beautiful demonstration of the Avventurina technique. Avventurina [tr. Aventurine] is one of many popular and widely recognised Murano technique and as its name suggests, is glass decorated with aventitius surface effects resembling the shimmering flecks of natural quartz. The decoration revives a 17th century technique pioneered in the Murano (Venice) glasshouse of the Miotto family.
This particular piece brings together a bold Candy Apple red with an exterior of silver floating shimmers that is cased in clear glass and worked into the organic, tricorn form. The clear casing is finished with 3 pulled rims, each supporting one of the three folded tips.
Highly tactile, the form invites touch and the timeless style is suitable for standalone display or functional use.
Excellent. There is very light use wear, most prominently on the underside of the base that is commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The piece is additionally marked with most of the Vetro Artistico Veneziano label on the underside of the base.
