Murano Glass masters have always been known for their tireless search for perfection as they sought to rediscover long-lost techniques and improve those already in existence. In the 20th century as artists started to dream bigger and bolder than ever, Murano Glass craft transitioned into an art form of its own, recognized and appreciated around the world. This unique Murano Glass Picasso Head Vase is the embodiment of this transformation, demonstrating how modern Venetian artists merge the old and the new and marry skill with bold imagination to express themselves through the medium of glass.
The vase is created in the form of an abstract head propped up on a base symbolizing collared neck and accented with bright fluid threads of color. It is an image inspired by modern artistic movements, especially by Picasso's incredible breakthroughs in the use of form, color, and perception. With shimmering silver foil lining the face, bold, simple, almost child-drawn features, messy colorful hair, this vase expresses the daring artistic vision achieved through amazing craftsmanship of Murano's best glass masters. It represents the continuous evolution of the art of Murano Glass and its relevance in today's global artistic landscape.
This gorgeous artistic vase makes a perfect gift to those who love modern art and seek unique statement pieces for their home or office.
Measurements: Picasso Head Vase measures approximately 11 inches in height, 8 inches in width in its widest (top) part and the diameter of the base is 7 inches. The vase has original sticker, has signature of the artist, and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit.
As this Murano Glass vase is a unique piece of art made entirely by hand, some variations of colors and patterns as well as random bubbles inside glass are possible.
Murano Glass vases, figurines, tumblers, and tableware often feature a unique look, where base layer of glass is decorated with colorful flowers, leaves, abstract glass streaks, or in other ways by applying stretched out dripping glass in various colors and shapes on top of a blown glass core. This technique requires precision, talent, and many years of experience working with Murano Glass. Murano Glass has unique characteristics which, when heated up, make it stretch and flow easily, and quickly cool off to form the desired pattern. Murano Glass masters in Venice often use this technique to create abstract Venetian glassware such as Picasso-style heads, vases, or sculptures, and other modern-art creations.
