This is a very fine vase by Fulvio Bianconi executed in the difficult technique of applying hot glass sections to an already blown glass blank. Many pieces cracked in the process. Similar pieces are illustrated in many books on Italian Murano glass.
Fulvio Bianconi was a great designer, and his creative energy enabled him to be constantly developing new ideas and techniques. Bianconi’s work for Venini is very important and sought after by collectors.
