Murano Blown Glass Ornament ‘Mandoi’ by Gianluca Vidal

This Murano blown glass ornament is exquisite in design and pose. This vase has the same shape as the well-known musical instrument.

Mouth-blown glass with amethyst, the “battuta a stelle” (technique) is featured in the centre and flows up to the lip of the vase.  Blue and yellow coloured murrine and yellow aventurine surround the centre and round to the other side of the vase.

A real individual piece for any room!

NB. The images shown are an example of the ones in the series. Each Murano blown glass ornament is handblown and therefore unique so the colour and pattern will vary slightly. 

Murano Blown Glass Ornament Artist

Gianluca Vidal started working with glass at the tender age of 14 at Studio Vetreria DP in Murano.  There he studied under the Glass Maestro, Imperio Rossi for two years.  He then went to Effetre International where he learned the most difficult techniques. There, under the guidance of the masters, Gianluca developed skills that would excel in his true talent for glass making.

Over the years Gianluca has worked with some of the most important Glass Maestros in 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 in 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 it 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 in Murano.
