Large Art Glass Vessels ‘Coppa 02’ by Gianluca Vidal
These beautiful large art glass vessels are a joy to behold! Coppa 02, at almost a meter in stature, demands attention. Vidal has mastered a perfect cross-hatch design around the body of the vessel. The tone and shade of the blue glass against the white crisscrossing of lines sets an alluring illusion. Such is the size of this piece, the body and the base are joined together by a center peg. Gianluca’s attention to detail ensures the peg itself is an intriguing piece. Delicate, flower like emblehisments, sit around a clear ball, which also boasts an array of colourful chips of glass. A perfect contrast to the dominate blue of the body and base.

Large Art Glass Vessels Artist
Gianluca Vidal started working with glass at the tender age of 14 at Studio Vetreria DP on Murano. There he studied under the Glass Maestro, Imperio Rossi for two years. He then went to the Effetre International where he learned the most difficult techniques. There, under the guidance of the masters, Gianluca developed skills that would excel his true talent for glass making.
Over the years Gianluca has worked with some of the most important Glass Maestros on Murano. These include Afro Celotto, Silvano Molin, Luciano Pavanello, Giancarlo Tagiapietra and Dino Vio, to name but a few. Gianluca earned the nickname ‘Crema’, due to his natural ability to gracefully shape glass as a cream!
Now, in his own studio on Murano, he works with coloured glass canes, to create his beautiful glass art. He designs and hand makes every piece himself and with one assistant. Gianluca signs and dates each piece, adding “Murano” and 1/1 to signify they are completely unique.
Gianluca has mastered techniques which few glassblowers can complete and has a unique sense of colour and composition of the pattern. Suffice to say, he is an incredible and very unique glass artist. Certainly, he is one of the most well known and well-collected glass masters on Murano.
