This vintage Murano Glass Fish sculpture is a mid-century Venetian art glass masterpiece crafted in famous Formia studio. Now closed, Formia was a major art glass company on Murano island since 1962, where many prominent Murano Glass artists of the 20th century had a chance to polish their skills and shape their artistic vision. This modernist fish sculpture reflects major art trends of the 20th century, such as abstractionism and minimalism. The simple shape of the fish is offset by the complexity of the color play achieved by the use of colored glass layers created using famous Sommerso technique. Sommerso technique was invented by Antonio Da Ross in the 1930's and was made world-famous in contemporary art glass by Flavio Poli, who was creative director of Seguso Vetri d'Arte. Controlled bubbles throughout, crafted using a complicated glass-making technique called bullicante, lend another touch of sophistication to the design. This fish is a symbolic representation Venice's affiliation with the sea and is a fine gift to any sea lover, Venice fan, or art glass collector.
