Center Piece Bowl on Base:
Material: Murano glass
Gino Cenedese & Son’s colorful handcrafted vases, goblets and chandeliers combine age-old Murano-glass techniques with the company’s own creative history. Founded in 1946, this Venetian workshop collaborated with artists such as Marc Chagall and Luigi Scarpa Croce on production items, which are sold in boutiques worldwide, as well as one-off pieces, some of which have appeared at art events like the Venice Biennale. And although Cenedese may be best known for its range of Aquarium sculptures — large clear blocks of glass filled with suspended fish and seaweed — it also specializes in the Sommerso — or submerged — technique, which uses layers of contrasting- and/or complementary-colored glass.
