Rich amber tonalities shade from a crystalline base to a deeper, darker color. Inspired by the legendary work of Murano artisans in Italy, Molinari Family artisans work in hand-blown glass to craft a vase of extraordinary beauty.
Antonio Carlos and his brother, Paulo Molinari, learned the ancient hand-blown glass technique as apprentices of the Italian master, Aldo Bonora, who came to Brazil from Murano Island. After eight years, they opened their own workshop in 1962. Considered among the most brilliant and talented hand-blown glass makers in the country, they have trained a number of glass artisans and have formed masters that have worked with them for more than 30 years.
More than fifty years ago, Antonio Carlos and Paulo Molinari set up their workshop with a small group of artisans. Today they have more than 100 artisans and more than 10 family members working with them.
This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
My father helped glass blowers, turners and finishers making me fond of hand made, blown, art glass. Not only do I cherish â€œGolden OmbrÃ©â€? that the artist made, I will order a second vase from the same family in the near future.
