Centrepiece Vases ‘Reliazzato’ by Gianluca Vidal
Gianluca’s centrepiece vases are a feast for the eyes. ‘Realizato’ are bold intricate glass that shows off Gianluca’s incredible glass mastery. The design of these vases has been cleverly placed. Each vase features an amber background with coloured and gold-decorated murrine. The large amber-coloured filigree medallions set off the design beautifully.
‘Ralizzato’ is available in four different shapes: a tall vase, a bowl-like shape, a platter, and a rounded vase with a’spout’. Each piece is mouth-blown and shaped with incredible skill.
These centrepiece vases are delicate in design but commanding in colour. Each one will make a statement on its own, or you may wish to group two or more for greater impact!

Centrepiece Vases Artist
Gianluca Vidal 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 of 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.
