MASACCIO by SEGUSO GIANNI
Il cigno è uno degli animali più carichi di simbologia: il suo collo flessuoso e il suo bianco piumaggio sono il simbolo per eccellenza della purezza e della leggerezza. Qui il cigno è inserito in una composizione che della leggerezza ha fatto il suo valore principale: prendere in mano uno di questi calici equivale a tenere tra le dita una piuma di questo nobile uccello. Il cigno, in foglia d'oro e con gli occhi rossi di fuoco, piegato su se stesso, sorregge la coppa del calice in vetro soffiato lavorato con la tecnica del rigadin, trasparente, cosparso di un pulviscolo di foglia d'oro zecchino: i suoi particolari, il piumaggio, il becco e la coda, sono resi con una maestria incredibile. Per le sue qualità primarie questo calice classico in vetro di Murano ha una valenza esclusivamente espositiva e non è adatto ad un uso alimentare.
SEGUSO GIANNI Srl
Una generazione dopo l’altra, la famiglia Seguso mantiene viva l’arte del vetro: un’arte che, contrariamente a quanto si potrebbe pensare ammirando la leggiadra eleganza dell’oggetto finito, si svolge in condizioni estreme. Tra fuoco, sudore, massima concentrazione fisica e mentale.
Un approccio materico che rimane identico da dieci secoli e che forgia capolavori dal valore unico.Gianni Seguso, titolare dell’omonima vetreria artistica, ricorda gli esordi al fianco del padre: “Ho avuto la fortuna di crescere professionalmente con lui, che sapeva fare tutto, basti pensare che diventò Maestro di bicchieri a soli sedici anni.
Nella maturità realizzava ogni sorta di oggetto, incluse le sculture in vetro su disegno di celebri artisti, ma soprattutto splendidi lampadari”.
La soffiatura del vetro, le cui origini vengono collocate tra il I secolo a.C. e il I d.C. In Siria, è una tecnica di lavorazione che ha rivoluzionato la produzione vetraria rendendola molto più veloce.
Si tratta della tecnica che può essere definita “classica” per ciò che riguarda la creazione di oggetti cavi. Può essere a bocca o stampo.
Nel primo caso il maestro, aiutato dai suoi assistenti, modella l'oggetto soffiando attraverso un lungo tubo metallico, la cosiddetta canna da soffio, forato nel senso della lunghezza.
Il vetro, prelevato dal centro del forno, viene soffiato e poi modellato con l'utilizzo di una borsella, una pinza di forme e dimensioni diverse a seconda del risultato che si vuole ottenere.
La borsella, infatti, può essere utilizzata per pizzicare l'oggetto, per strozzarlo, per depurarlo dalle imperfezioni, per aprirlo o per dargli una forma precisa. La canna durante il lavoro viene continuamente fatta roteare, in questo modo, infatti, la forza di gravità non può deformare il vetro ancora morbido.
La soffiatura a stampo, invece, consiste nella soffiatura del vetro in uno stampo che, a Murano, è di legno di pero. Può essere costituito da due o tre parti incernierate, utilizzato per dare la forma all'oggetto, o da un unico pezzo troncoconico, solitamente in bronzo e ottone, utilizzato per imprimere all'oggetto uno specifico motivo decorativo.
