Scavo Art Glass Vase, made by Seguso Vetri d’Arte, Murano, Venice, Italy circa 1970’s

This is a Beautiful Art glass vase, made by Seguso Vetri d’Arte, Murano, Venice, Italy circa late 1970’s.

A Wonderful minimal piece that showcases the craftsmanship and special techniques used by the master craftsman glassblowers of Murano.
Made using the Scavo technique this β€œfrosted glass” was introduced in the 1950’s in order to obtain an archeological effect typical of objects found underground after a very long time.During blowing a mixture of several powders, by the glass artist
are fused at a temperature of about 800Β°C on the surface of the glass vase.

This aged rough look combined with the traditional form give the piece a Postmodern look, referencing the classical in a modernist contemporary way. Very minimal and space age!

A Stunning piece, it catches the light beautifully with a diffuse glow, would look stunning with bright flowers, or on its own as a sculptural piece of art glass.

Would complement any retro, vintage, minimal, modernist, postmodern, 70′;s, 80’s or contemporary styled interior.

In Excellent Condition no marks, chips or scratches, still bears the original Seguso label.

Measures 16 x 8 x 8cm / 6.25 x 3.25 x 3.25in.
