Murano Art Glass Ornament ‘Sommerso’ by Gianluca Vidal

This Murano art glass ornament conveys greatness in its complexity and skill of design.  Zanfirico, an intricate type of filigree with spiral colored threads of white is evident upon this vibrant piece.  Bold lines of blue stem out from the center faces.  While lines of red and black encapsulate it.  Murano’s trademark of ultra thin glass brings a great depth to this piece and even more admiration to how such mastery can be achieved within this Murano art glass ornament.

Murano Art Glass Ornament 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.
