This simple, yet extremely complicated to make vase, has a timeless design dating 1930 but keeps all the contemporary elegance as if it was designed yesterday.“Napoleone Martinuzzi (1892-1977) is considered one of the most significant innovators in the Murano glass art; art director at Venini 1925-1931. Several new glass techniques were implemented in his creations, which include sculptures, lamps and collectible objects, all of which show his distinguished and unique style.”Technique: OpalMilk-white is an opal glass, created for the first time in Murano in the early 15th century in order to imitate porcelains, which were very renowned in Europe in those times. This particular type of color is obtained by overlapping transparent colors to the Milk-white one. Sometimes it is possible to add some gold leaves in order to obtain the “Aurati” vases. This technique is able to light up colors and confers to the object a decorative effect, sometimes emphasized by a gold leaf.
