Hand-blown from glass with effervescent little bubbles, this decorative centerpiece captures the beauty of ocean waves. The art glass accent is presented by the Molinari Family of Brazil, who carry on their Italian glassmaking traditions with this work, adding beautiful shades of yellow and blue.
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.
This is my second piece of blown glass from this shop. I am extremely pleased with both and constantly receive compliments. This piece is the smaller one but very heavy. I detected no flaws, the blue/yellow color combination provides a light area of green (aqua). The piece can sit level or be displayed on it?s side. A plate stand is not needed due to added features. True to the picture, but even better. When sunlight hits it, the colors change hue. Fantastic products that I could not recommend highly enough!
