Murano Glass is a form of art, which draws inspiration from the important artistic trends of the past and present. Inspired by the art and legacy of the innovative artist of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso, the top masters in the factories of Murano island created this Murano Glass Head, which reflects Picasso’s unique style and nonconformist approach to art. The Picasso-style sculpture shows a woman's face with exaggerated surrealist features in a state of reflection. The red cheeks, the deep blue eyes, the closely set dark brows and the pose of one shoulder above another convey beauty, intellectual depth, and sensuality, with a measure of sadness. By putting three-dimensional objects onto flat surface Picasso achieved a 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 unusual objects of Murano Glass, they can be found in Venice only in a few selected galleries, and are very rare finds outside of Murano and Venice. This Picasso Head makes a perfect gift for anyone who likes modern art, appreciates Picasso and his style, and values handmade, one-of-a-kind Murano Glass creations.

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.
