This striking and ethereal work of handblown, hot-worked, mid century art glass is attributed to Viartec THF, very Murano in style and quality, this piece brings with it a beautiful demonstration of the Sommerso art glass technique.
Sommerso is one of the most popular and widely recognised Murano techniques, which in Italian literally means “submerged”. This technique is used to create several layers of glass (usually with different contrasting colours) inside a single object, giving the illusion of 'immersed' colours.
This particular piece brings together a vivid and fiery Scarlet red that is encased in Deep Tangelo orange-red. The stylised form is reminiscent of the organic hot worked sugar in sugar art or the candy coating of a Candy Apple. The wings are drawn outwards from the centre to end in a lightly inverted curve at the end before one wing is twisted forward and the other wing is brought backwards to create the mild twist.
The beautiful form, eye-catching size and condition allows this piece to be suitable for standalone display as a centrepiece.
Excellent. There is very light use wear on the surface that is typical and commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report.
