This breathtaking Murano Glass Bowl is the very essence of the play of light and colors that characterizes the art of Venetian glass-making. The bowl's artistic look and its brilliance are achieved by using a famous Murano Glass technique called Sommerso. By expertly layering colored glass without mixing the colors, Murano masters realize a unique look where colors reign supreme, continuously creating new chromatic effects under different lighting. Moreover, the form of this bowl deserves special attention as it reflects nature's elegance, symbolizing the dynamism of a wave caught mid-flight, and evokes seascapes surrounding Venice.
Sommerso technique was invented by Murano Glass masters in the 1930's in an effort to express new artistic movements, which called for a new way to use colors and forms. Since then, Sommerso decorative glassware has earned international acclaim and became the preferred choice of artists and interior designers worldwide for accentuating modern interiors. Murano's best master craftsmen and artists, whose lineage goes back to the famous local artisans of the centuries past, put their skill and passion into creating this beautiful centerpiece.
