About

Amazing midcentury amber yellow "Sommerso" Murano glass vase. This fantastic piece was created by Artistic Crystal in the 1970s. This amazing item has its original label and it's unique because of the way the Murano Glass is shaped. The Sommerso technique was originally developed in the 1930s by Antonio Da Ross. Sommerso (Italian for "submerged") is the Murano glassmaking technique of creating two or more layers of contrasting glass without the colours mixing together. It is formed by dipping colored glass into a molten glass of a different color, before blowing the glass into the required form. The outermost layer is often clear. During the 1950's the Sommerso style became world-famous due to the work of Flavio Poli, artistic director of Seguso Vetri d'Arte. There have since been many other factories in the Murano region that have made pieces in this style, and as such, it is difficult to be certain of the manufacturer without labels or signatures present. Other well-known manufacturers that have produced glassware in the Sommerso style include Mandruzzato, Galliano Ferro, Formia, Oball, Arte Nuova, and Luigi Onesto. This fantastic and original piece is a one-a-kind item that will complete a colorful midcentury living room.
