Walter Furlan, Murano Glass Sculpture Horse Head 'Homage to Picasso'



'Giuliano Cavallo' homage to Picasso. Glass sculpture signed by the master Walter 'Furlan, 1980s Walter Furlan was born in 1931 in Chioggia, a small town near Venice. He started to work in a furnace called “VAMSA” very early. He apprenticed from one of the most famous glass masters on the island, Romano Tosi, better known as 'Mamaracio'. Towards the end of the second world war (1940-1945) he worked in the furnace 'Gino Cenedese', where he met Alfredo Barbini along with the old masters from Vamsa (among others: Mamaracio and Gino Forte, better known as 'Peta'). During this period Master, Walter Furlan learned the particular technique called 'a massello' (i.e. he learned how to shape a quantity of glass that was not blown and therefore quite difficult to handle). In 1963, he exhibited his works of art in the official Glass Display on Murano Island sponsored by the Venetian Institute for Work and later on in Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Reggio, Calabria. At the beginning of the 70’s he cooperated with Master Angelo Seguso and designer Mario Pinsoni in the glass factory 'Seguso Art Glass'. The works of Walter Furlan are to be found in museums collection all over the world.
