Details

Brazil's Seguso Family creates a hypnotic effect with white and black arches in the design of this flattened round 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.

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.
