This fabulous Murano Glass Vase presents a contemporary take on classic Venetian glass-making technique called Sommerso. By ingeniously layering colored glass, Murano masters achieve a unique look, where colors interplay without mixing and create various chromatic effects depending on the lighting. Sommerso technique was invented by Murano Glass artists in the 1930's in an effort to find ways to express new artistic movements, which called for bold colors and innovative designs. Having achieved almost instant international fame, Sommerso has quickly become the standard of modern beauty for artists and designers all over the world. Top maestros in a prominent Murano workshop, whose works are featured in museums and galleries worldwide, lovingly crafted this vase from a potent mix of decades-long experience and artistic imagination inspired by Venice.
The unique shape features elegant curves accented with leafy elements of Murano's signature fazzoletto style, and the rich color palette, which impresses without overwhelming. This gorgeous Murano Glass vase is an instant conversation piece and a sophisticated Venetian design accent for any room, whether classic or contemporary in style. Despite its fragile look, this vase is heavy and made to become a family heirloom lasting through generations. Classic and trendy at the same time, this Murano Sommerso vase makes a fine gift for momentous occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or weddings.
