Cenedese, Murano Sommerso organic glass vase in red and yellow, designed by Antonio Da Ros, Venice, Italy circa 1960’s

This Cenedese single stem vase, encapsulates everything great about Murano art glass.  The beautiful organic shape with its contrasting sharp angled rim marks a clear break from tradition, embracing the space age futuristic styles of the 1960s.  The handmade blown glass is skillfully and amazingly layered using the Sommerso (submerged) technique, creating encased coloured capsules that need no other adornment.  It catches and refracts the light beautifully and becomes a sculptural piece of art in its own right.
