As artistic as it is beautiful, this art glass decorative bowl from Brazil resembles a splash of water. The Molinari Family uses Murano-style techniques to blow this bowl by hand. Pigments of blue and yellow add color.
Antonio Carlos and his brother, Paulo Molinari, learned the ancient hand-blown glass technique as apprentices of the Italian master, Aldo Bonora, who came to Brazil from Murano Island. After eight years, they opened their own workshop in 1962. Considered among the most brilliant and talented hand-blown glass makers in the country, they have trained a number of glass artisans and have formed masters that have worked with them for more than 30 years.
More than fifty years ago, Antonio Carlos and Paulo Molinari set up their workshop with a small group of artisans. Today they have trained many more artisans and family members, who all work with them.
This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
