Long Glass Vase ‘Filigrana’ by Massimiliano Schiavon Art Team
As the name suggests Filigrana is a long glass vase that embodies all that is filigree. Red and black crystal rods are melted together, to create this winsome vase. Through hot work, the resulting neck is created, pulled like that of a swan. However, it is the cold work that sets this vase apart. Diamond point engraving, of straight equidistance lines upon the vase, requires great precision and skill.
At over a meter tall, this long glass vase was made to be showcased!
Long Glass Vase Artist
Representing six generations of family glass. Massimiliano Schiavon was born on the 24th of March 1971 in Murano. His curiosity of glass would be elevatable. His yearning to understand how to manipulate glass in shape and colour cultivated him to be the Master he is today.
Working within the family factory, Massimiliano fine-tuned his skills. Drawing together the knowledge of materials, colours, chemicals, and characteristics of different types of glass. Such experience and extensive knowledge empowers Massimiliano to forge any creation he visualises.
Fully established within the international glass world, Massimiliano looked to his dream of owning his own furnace. By re-opening his grandfather’s factory, which laid dormant for ten years. Massimiliano fulfilled his need for more space. Allowing him to increase his productivity to meet demand and explore his creativity.
After six years from the rebuilding of his grandfather’s factory, Massimiliano has established a new empire. Once his family produced the spherical glass of the street lamps. Today it is an environment where his genius invests new forces and creates unique collections.
Massimiliano and his Arts Team have and are collaborating with art galleries all over the world. His work can be found in galleries in Germany, Russia, the United States, and Canada.
Massimiliano thrives on inventing new collections. Together with the Maestri that work with him, he strives to offer unique, novel, glass, that will rival all in the art glass world!
