The listing, SIGNED! XL Submerged Murano Multi Sommerso Luigi Onesto Oggetti Art Glass Vase has ended.

Tall free-form cased glass vase with cobalt blue interior, honey color outer, signed on the underside, with original Oggetti sticker on the side.

This is a supremely beautiful dramatic large first class example piece of 20th century art glass using the sommerso technique and colours resulting in a magnificent and very eye catching free form tall pointed beak glass vase with very striking and dramatic light reflecting green & amber colours within the clear glass body. A truly beautiful piece that stands very proud. A very high complex and quality piece with dramatic colours and design. The piece was designed and made by Luigi Onesto for Oball. Signed L.Onesto. A very fashionable piece of art glass originally made on the Island of Murano.

One of the most famous family makers of Italian Murano art glass is Luigi Onesto. Born in Murano, Italy to a family of glassmakers, Luigi was immersed in the art from an early age. As a teenager he honed his craft during his apprenticeship at Gambaro & Poggi, one of the oldest and leading glass making companies in Italy at the time. Once he had attained suitable skill he founded his own art glass studio, Vetreria Artistica Oball, where he now works with his sons. On numerous occasions he has collaborated with Oggetti, the famous U.S importer and retailer of fine Italian art glass.Luigi's work is characterized by his exceptionally skillful use of the sommerso technique. Sommerso involves layering multiple colors of glass for a very distinctive and beautiful effect. It is not a simple process by any means and in the hands of lesser artists the effect is often ruined by the presence of air bubbles between the layers. In the hands of a skilled artist like Luigi Onesto the end result is quite dazzling as you can see in this fantastic example.

This vase comes from a smoke free pet free environment. Please have a verified address no buyers remorse and all Listia rules apply thank you.
