CLESSIDRE, blown and worked by hand using the complex “Incalmo” technique which consists in welding together hot glass elements, usually of different colours, in order to create a single object. read more...
Elements of blown glass enclose the sand, letting it pass but holding it back, as in a perpetual balance between yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The forms and style of the original artistic production are thus continuously refreshed.
With its iconic projects and new creations, the glassworks presents its works in two collections:
Art Glass brings together a series of extraordinary sculptural vases and objects for interior decoration;
Art Light features chandeliers and important lighting installations for large public or private spaces.
Creations bearing the Venini signature have become part of the permanent collections of museums. One of them is the Metropolitan Museum and MoMA in New York, the Fondation Cartier in Paris, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Venini’s own museum contains 45.000 drawings, 10.000 vintage photos and 4.000 works of art, making it the most precious historical archive of modern and contemporary glass art in the world.
