Glass objects

Maestrale e libeccio

Maestrale e Libeccio

Lookouts of futuristic inspiration, staring at the winds that shape their manes. Strength and lightness represented by intense colours fading into a delicate transparency.

I am very interested in the chromatic overlap of glass colours that, as in the game of basic colours, can create the whole palette. And so, by dipping yellow in blue we get green, and with light and dark blue we see the variations of tones of tropical seas’ waters, represented by these two ‘semi-submerged’ fishes.

Sirene

Le Sirene

I research and obtain a deliberately changing interpretation of shapes, thanks to their superimposition on colours. Still within the sea theme, these two sinuous silhouettes draw inspiration from two mermaids resting upon each other.

Posidonia

Posidonia

The theme of sea shapes inspires this production, which shows the sinuosity of the shapes of algae swaying with water currents and forming curvilinear vases.

Le Dive

Le Dive

Anthropomorphic shapes are well represented in these vases, inspired by the silhouettes of three very famous movie stars, Lauren, Litz  and Rita. The divas wear long evening dresses that wrap their beautiful bodies, which play together to create a magical intersection of lines.

I Novizi

I Novizi

It was interesting the research for representing, in this design for a glass item, two hooded little friars wrapped in their habit while assuming a typical praying position.

Bulbo

Bulbo

This snug shape is a container destined to unfold and reveal something precious, since in its outer skin there is a gold leaf drowned between the glass and the crystal covering. Bulbo is a glass item that shows in its interior a colour that is not the usual white, but one in harmony with the external surface.

Desiderio

Desiderio

Such an open shape seems to mean the intent to attract something. Like a carnivorous plant, Desiderio is waiting for something to welcome.

sovrapposizione colori

Presse-papier

Technique: Two glasses of different colors are poured into the same mold, and overlapping, thanks to their transparence they create a third color. Then, before blowing the glass, like in Samoa and Fiji, the “pea” (first draft of blowing) is prepared from the first glass, and dipped in the darker one using a “cassa”. Once the glasses are coupled, they’re blown in a wooden mold, to get the final shape and the blending of colors
