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.

Workmanship



Sbruffo is a distinctive Murano Glass design, which features rough-surfaces and multiple colors flowing into each other. Sbruffo objects are made by putting layers of colored glass on top of each other streak-by-streak without polishing them, creating an impression of flowing glass. Using multiple colors and unique forms, the masters make tumblers, glasses, vases, bowls, and sculptures with sbruffo designs, which are instantly recognizable as authentic Murano Glass. Only a few Murano Glass factories still create sbruffo art glass objects, and many interior design aficionados, collectors and Murano Glass fans seek these objects of refined beauty and distinct Italian elegance.
