Prototype / experimental bowl from Vistosi's factory archives. Consequently the design is a bit rough around the edges.

The body of the bowl is formed entirely from a single piece of glass that's been 'folded' in several places. At the base it is compressed flat to make the bladed foot, at the top rim it is folded to encase a ribbon of opal glass, and near to the outer rim it is folded over once again to encase a ribbon of dark blue glass. The edge of the bowl is lined with a lighter blue ribbon (not encased).

The bowl probably dates mid/late 1980s. If anyone knows the designer, I'd love to hear!

A slumped/fused dish or slab (depending on how you want to display it). Probably mid-1980s.

And a free-standing sculpture from the same series.

A gallery-standard sculpture by Luciano Vistosi from the 'Natura Sommersa' ('Submerged Nature') series (1986-87). Signed/dated 1986.

Features slabs of panel-cut industrial glass bonded together. The core slab has stylised trees painted on either side in black enamel and highlighted in gold leaf. The top and sides of the sculpture are decorated with cut geometric lines.
