Generation after generation, the Seguso family keeps the art of glass alive. Gianni Seguso, owner of the art glass workshop by the same name, remembers his debut alongside his father: "I had the blessing to grow professionally with him, he could make anything, and even became drinking-glass master at the age of sixteen! In his later years, he would produce any sort of object, including glass sculptures designed by famous artists, but especially magnificent chandeliers".
These few statements capture the work philosophy of Gianni Seguso, who now works in the furnace with his son Marco. Even though many of this furnace's creations are excellent examples of classic style (one for all, the prestigious "Ca' Rezzonico" style chandeliers), much energy is also devoted to searching for new shapes and ideas.
This is how the ancient heart of tradition, represented by the careful ritualistic movements that are cherished as crucial inheritance of the old masters, is joined to a desire for creativity and constant renewal, to breathe new life into the thousand-year old art of Murano glass. Along the lines of this philosophy, the new line of jewellery GioVe was born within the furnace, to breathe new life into this ancient tradition.
