Inauguration: BluMurano Sculpture

Denise Gemin & Fornace Mian

Description

Inauguration of "BluMurano" installation

 

"BluMurano" is a sculpture project made up of over 100 elements in artistic glass: each piece is unique and is mouth-blown and hand-worked in the furnace by the master glassmakers of the Fornace Mian in Murano. In particular for this realization a mysterious mineral that makes it bright in the dark has been added to the glass.The overall diameter is 300 cm and height 280 cm. The internal metal structure is composed of a conical central cage with pins supporting the glass and equipped with internal lighting. It represents a large blue waterlily lying on the lagoon with petals in shades of blue, aquamarine, blue, cerulean, sapphire and blue that create a play of light with the sun on the lagoon.
