Featuring a two-tone design in purple and blue, this beautiful Brazilian vase makes a striking addition to any home. It is hand-blown from glass by the Molinari Family, who carry on the glass crafting traditions of Italy's Murano Island, adding wave motifs to the sides and petal shapes to the rim. Tiny bubbles dance across the entire piece for a gorgeous appearance.
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 trained many more artisans and family members, who all work with them.
This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
