Brown Vases ‘Dioniso 35’ by Gianluca Vidal
If brown vases are on your wish list, then Dioniso 35 is the one. In complete contrast to Vidals usual colourful array of vases, Dioniso presents a nobel, solemn air.
Charaterised by three main cold working techniques. Battuto, grinding that leaves a large “scoop”. The surface looks as though it has been
beaten or hammered. Fills the black glass that falls around the vase. while Insico and Sema adds depth to the brown bronzed glass.
At half a meter in length Dioniso 35, cuts an impressive stature. Heads above other brown vases.
Brown Vases 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.
