Details

Brazil's Seguso Family creates a hypnotic effect with white and black arches in the design of this oval paperweight. Experts in the legendary art of blown glass, they masterfully craft this paperweight by blowing down steel pipettes while creating the figurine's shape by hand.

The presence of air bubbles accentuates the nature of the traditional hand blown crafting process, making each piece unique.

Excellent item. Heavy enough for actual use as a paperweight, but excellent just as a visual ornament.

"Gorgeous!"

I have a very neutral living room and rely on accent pieces for pops of color. This vase is one of the highlights of the room! The colors are gorgeous and its a very heavy, substantial piece of glass. I love it!

"Perfect gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was purchased as a thank you to the hosts of my daughters engagement party. It is breathtaking in person and was very happily received. The hostess immediately placed it on a display cabinet and upon a subsequent visit, it was still there so we know they truly loved it. This piece is class all the way.

"Beautiful vase"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very pleased with this unusual and bright vase. Using it strictly as a display piece to coordinate with wall art and brighten a particular area. The vase opening is small so only a few stems could fit. It s also a solid, heavy piece.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Mario Seguso, the patriarch of the Seguso Family, was born in 1929 in Venice, Italy to one of the oldest and most famous blown glass artisan families on the island of Murano. His ancestors have crafted art glass since 1300. In 1956, Mario created his own workshop in Brazil. He has passed on his knowledge to his sons, grandsons and the artisans working with him. He is proud to have many assistants and to have trained eight glass masters in his workshop.

The Seguso Family provides work for a number of full-time blown glass artisans.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

This artist supports children under the age of 18.
