In English, "Cattedrale" means cathedral; a large church, usually with notable stained glass windows. This exquisite vase beautifully emulates this stunning, multi-colored art form. Rich shades of glass cane in red, orange, yellow, turquoise, yellow, green, blue, and gold adorn its surface with a large millefiori "star or flower" on one side. Glass cane is a rod of glass composed of one or more layered colors of glass and millefiori (meaning a million flowers in Italian) is the fusing together of multi-colored glass rods and then cutting them crosswise to create a flower pattern. Both techniques are superbly exhibited here.
Stunning for home or office decor.
In world-famous Murano, under the guidance of Glass Master Reno Sciavon, brothers Mattio and Silvio Toso have succeeded in evolving the art of glass while maintaining the tradition of centuries.
Artist authentification included.
