Murano Glass Bowl ‘Lisa Platter’ By Gianluca Vidal
This Murano glass bowl is part of Gianluca’s ‘Lisa’ series. The platter boasts an intricate type of filigree with spirals of blue threads, within a green and aqua glass. Two disc’s of golden rays sit perfectly around the sides. The intricacy of design ensures that this is a glorious table centerpiece!
NB The images shown are an example of the ones in the series. Each of the Murano blown glass ornaments are handblown and therefore entirely unique and so the colour and pattern will vary slightly. Please allow at least 5-7 working days for delivery.
Murano Glass Bowl 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.
