Sculpture or perfume bottle? Its unique design makes this object a small masterpiece, which has the amazing quality of being an everyday use object. Every detail is meticulously cared for: its basic shape intentionally recalls the typical Alessandro Mandruzzato vase, with raised lines that create an infinite play of light and shadow. The neck of the bottle is hand-engraved, and frames the lines with reflections that only glass can give. The stopper is spectacular: an unmistakeable diamond shape, hand-engraved on its entire surface. Its oversize appearance is what makes it truly unique: luxurious and magical, typical of daring artists that create timeless masterpieces.
Alessandro Mandruzzato was born in Venice in 1970. At the age of 15 he started to follow in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, applying himself to the ancient muranese art and working in the family’s glass-bevelling workshop.
The Mandruzzato family has lived and worked in Murano for three generations. Alessandro’s grandfather Luigi opened his workshop in 1934, in the same place as it is today, a location very dear to his heart as he had lived there before — the workshop is built on the foundations of an old boarding school. Here, along with his son Gianfranco, he began developing new and experimental techniques. Starting in 1956, thanks to an innovative marketing technique and experimental design, they captured the attention of the international artistic scene, participating in numerous events in Italy and abroad, working with artists of the caliber of Pablo Picasso.
In 2000, Alessandro took on the management of the family workshop, giving life to the “Alessandro Mandruzzato” brand. He chooses to remain faithful to the ancient techniques of the island’s glassmakers, while experimenting with many aspects of glass-bevelling techniques, pushing limits to its most extreme and avant-garde applications, giving life to exclusive art. Each piece is absolutely unique and can be considered “autobiographical”, a mark of transformaiton of raw material, a representation of human sentiment or a moment in a life experience. Artwork by Alessandro Mandruzzato are exposed in many galleries and museums in Venice, Milan, New York, Paris, Moscow and Dubai, and are part of the permanent collection at the famous Library of Alexandria in Egypt, and at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia.
