Murano Art Glass ‘Fiamme 26’ by Gianluca Vidal
This Murano art glass vase echoes the Murano tradition of murrrhine’s, here, “tutti murrine’. Vibrant colours of cobalt, red, white and black all call out. While three larger individually made, tempered murrhini disks reveal a deeper complexity of the design, drawing the admirer in and will not disappoint!
The bold cobalt edge and ‘bechi’, lip beautifully balance the colourful, jazzy vase below. This Murano art glass vase is the perfect centrepiece for any display.
Murano Art Glass 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 glass blowers 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.
