EXQUISITE Alfredo Barbini, MURANO SCAVO ART GLASS VASE/BOWL in RARE RED COLOR, Made in Italy in the 1960s.
This is an Abstract Design Scavo Texture Italian Art Glass Flower Vase/Bowl. The Great Murano Glass Masters: Alfredo Barbini. Alfredo Barbini, a glass artist born in 1912 on the islands of Murano in the lagoon of Venice, Italy, was one of Murano's leading figures of the twentieth century.
His parents were members of families which had been prominent in the glassmaking industry on Murano for generations as glassblowers. The Barbini family goes back a long way, when the family name was added to Venice's Golden Book, a book known for containing the "crème de la crème" of Venetian noble families and the best glass masters. Beginning his career with one of Muranos most famous furnaces, Alfredo started working with glass at the tender age of 13. After 17 years, he became a master glassblower and showed an incredible talent in designing and crafting bold and beautiful glass pieces.
After World War II Barbini gained more and more recognition as a famous master glassblower and designer. His strong aesthetics and vivid imagination allowed him to mold his designs to satisfy the preferences of his colleagues and patrons. His experience expanded even more after working for two other great masters, Luigi Scarpa Croce and Salviati. In 1948, he presented an incredible collection of decorative art glass in corroso style mimicking corroded surface effects.He perfected the way in which thick colored layers of glass were superimposed over each other, fusing each layer so brilliantly that the joining lines seemed non-existent; they were seamlessly turning into each other creating brilliant reflections and amazing color combinations. Barbini is renowned for his heavy, thick sculptural forms, which have won him many awards and many thousands of dollars for his works. As you can see, the bottom of this vase is signed.
