Murano Blown Glass ‘Notabile 24’ by Gianluca Vidal
Gianluca’s murano blown glass, Notabile 26 is awash with vibrant canes of red, yellow and orange. True to form Gianluca does not disappoint with this piece. The striking discs of orange and brown peroi upon each face draws the eye. Which is then framed by the fiery red. A band of murrine runs the length of the vase either side highlighting the beauty within.
The bechi lip boasts clear glossy glass and displays the true intricacy within this vase.

Murano Blown Glass Artist
Gianluca Vidal is a Master of Murano Glass. He 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.
