Taper Sculpture by Gianluca Vidal

This taper sculpture, or long-necked vase/vessel is a fiery amber-red transparent piece of glass.

Meticulously made with separately mouth-blown, amber-red medallions with white filigree to separate the medallions.

Delicate, alluring, and exceptionally well crafted by a living legend of Murano Glass.

A towering 110 cm piece that will add gravitas to your interior decor. Perfect for mantels in a tall stately home or in low sills in long hallways. Also, it is the perfect piece for side tables to add extra intrigue.

NB. The image shown is an example of the one in the series. Each piece is handblown and therefore unique, so the colour and pattern will vary slightly. 

Taper Sculpture Artist

Luca Vidal glass artist is a master of Murano glass.  He 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 glassmaking.

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, with one assistant. Gianluca signs and dates each piece, adding “Murano” and 1/1 to signify they are completely unique.

Gianluca has mastered techniques that few glassblowers can complete and has a unique sense of colour and composition in the pattern. Suffice it to say that 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.
