This vintage abstract Murano Glass flowing form sculpture is a modernist Venetian art glass masterpiece making use of complicated Filigrana technique and symbolizing yin and yang, the opposite forces that shape our world. Its combination of black and white, tenderness and boldness, fitting together while separating, is a powerful metaphor for the dual nature of things and the complexity of life.

Crafted by one of the most prominent Murano maestros, Adriano Dalla Valentina, this sculpture is an amazing find for any Murano Glass lover. Adriano's career started in a traditional Murano Glass furnace when he was only 10 years old, and at the age of 24, he established his own furnace and quickly earned fame with his creations, which are rooted in classic Murano Glass art and techniques while being thoroughly modern. Adriano Dalla Valentino's art glass has been exhibited in Italy and abroad to great acclaim, and his art can be found in major museums in Europe, the United States, and Japan. While the master, unfortunately, passed away in 2019 his art is as popular as ever and many Murano Glass collectors and fans seek to purchase his original glass sculptures.

Workmanship



Larger Murano Glass figures and sculptures are typically made in the ancient factories on Murano island, where there is enough space to turn, twist, and blow the glass, move it into and out of the large furnaces, and cool it down properly. Making the glass mixture with the right color intensity and pattern is only a part of the job. The biggest challenge is shaping the glass just perfectly while keeping it in the correct state in between the bench and the furnace. This requires special skills rarely found outside of Murano Glass artist and artisan community. These Murano Glass sculptures of lovers, abstract art, and animals crafted in well-known Murano factories are top-quality art glass pieces sought after by interior decor specialists and collectors alike.
