COATED 6 Pcs Drinking Set by SEGUSO GIANNI
Goti are as old as the art of Murano glass: these drinking glasses are created by the master glassmaker and his team in the furnace oven with the glass available at the moment to allow the workers to quench their thirst during breaks from the hot, grueling labour.
They are a first processing product of Murano glass: the goti aren’t shaped or refinished in a second processing, they are completed and left exactly as they emerge from molten glass. As you may imagine, each “goto” is an exclusive and unique piece. The goti are created with a different, less elaborate process than what can be called “finished” glasses.
Coated, which is composed of six drinking glasses, is a classic example of design and tradition. The traditional technique of glass-blowing is a perfect match for modern design, with its raised chocolate filaments wrapped around the glass as a chocolate brush strokes.
The crystal surface is illuminated by a thick gold leaf crackle. Since each glass is hand-shaped by the master, each of these pieces is absolutely unique: 6 small, unrepeatable masterpieces! A fun and elegant set to set your table apart: a unique gift to amaze and be amazed.
SEGUSO GIANNI Srl
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.
