TONGA Marine Animal by GAMBARO & POGGI
This collection of fish by Gambaro & Poggi is the perfect symbol of Venice. The fish, in fact, embodies the peculiar shape of Venice, one of the many features that make the city absolutely unique.
This collection includes two series of sea animals: blowfish and flat fish. The typical feature of the blowfish is its round, inflated shape. The body features gold leaf on red glass, and its base bears an exquisite mosaic of millefiori murrine, typical of Muranese tradition.
The animal's defined fins, tail and mouth are coated in gold leaf. This fish is available in two sizes, large and small: a splendid collectible home accessory!
Like all products born from the creativity of Murano's master glassmakers, this fish is one-of-a-kind: any small variations are typical and a witness to its handcrafted quality.
VETRERIA ARTISTICA GAMBARO & POGGI Sas
The company "Vetreria Artistica Gambaro & Poggi" was founded in 1974 by two master glassmakers: Mario Gambaro and Bruno Poggi. Born and raised in Murano, they both started working in furnaces from a very young age, developing outstanding qualities.
Their apprenticeship took place in the shadow of the great masters, such as Archimede Seguso and Alfredo Barbini, in high-caliber furnaces like Seguso Vetri d'Arte, Vincenzo Nason and Barovier & Toso.
Gambaro & Poggi is distinguished for its collection of art glass products of classic manufacturing design: big and small masterpieces of high artistic craftsmanship, ranging from classic objects such as glasses, vases, plates, animals and sculptures, just to name a few, to true collector's items made in exclusive limited editions.
While celebrating the typical Murano glass techniques, Gambaro & Poggi has experimented in keeping its objects and creations always current and in step with the times. In 1985, Luciano Gambaro entered the company.
