Murano Glass is a form of art, which draws inspiration from the important artistic trends of the past and present. In a tribute to the greatest and most innovative artist of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso, the most talented masters on Murano island created this Murano Glass Head Of A Woman, which reflects Picasso’s distinguished style and pioneering approach to art. The Picasso-inspired face is split in the middle, showing the duality of the human nature. The sculpture's bright colors and bold shapes convey unique beauty, sensuality, and complexity of the human soul by using abstract forms and cubist manner characteristic of Picasso’s art. By putting three-dimensional objects onto two-dimensional space Picasso achieved sharp focus on the details, which are key to the perception of art. Murano Glass Picasso inspired busts and faces are some of the most prized objects of contemporary art in Venice and beyond. They make a perfect gift for anyone who likes modern art, appreciates Picasso and his style, and enjoys the continuity of art trends in Murano Glass artistic tradition.

Workmanship



Making of Murano Glass Picasso heads, faces, hands, and other sculptures is a long and meticulous process, which includes multiple steps. First, the base of the head is crafted from transparent or colored glass using a special bronze mold. Once the base of the head cools off, the glass-master adds features to it in a quick, precise manner, one by one, repeatedly re-heating the head in the furnace to ensure the correct state of the glass for glass-making. In the end, the master adds the hair by applying a layer of hot glass mass over the head and using basic instruments to shape it up and create unique hairstyles. The end result is a stunning modern art sculpture in the surrealist and cubist style of Pablo Picasso, which makes a fine gift and a perfect accent for any contemporary or mid-century interior design.
