There's a sense of harmony in the design of this decanter as red fiery hues come alive at the base only to freeze at the clear stopper. The decanter is crafted by hand with traditional blown-glass motifs reminiscent of Murano's legacy and mastered by Brazil's Seguso Family.
The presence of air bubbles accentuates the nature of the traditional hand blown crafting process, making each piece unique.
Mario Seguso, the patriarch of the Seguso Family, was born in 1929 in Venice, Italy to one of the oldest and most famous blown glass artisan families on the island of Murano. His ancestors have crafted art glass since 1300. In 1956, Mario created his own workshop in Brazil. He has passed on his knowledge to his sons, grandsons and the artisans working with him. He is proud to have many assistants and to have trained eight glass masters in his workshop.
The Seguso Family provides work for a number of full-time blown glass artisans.
This piece is really special. The form and color and weight distribution of the glass is outstanding. I could not be more pleased with this. Then workmanship is superb. I love looking at it and it now has a primary spot on my mantle.
