The LOVERS collection presents a selection of vases designed by Marco Mencacci and realized in Murano by master glassmaker Andrea Zilio, a passionate guardian of the traditional Venetian techniques. Each piece is unique. They are (signed by the artist), numbered and delivered with a certificate. Their uniqueness is rooted in the combination of transparent and filigree glass. Drawing on the century-old zanfirico process, where multiple canes are twisted as they are pulled, the threads of glass take a spiral shape that is embroidered under the surface.
Mencacci can transform the material of glass into plasma, evoking the living world of the abyss, tribal rituals, the reflections of oil or latex, the transparencies of sea creatures and the pearliness of shells.
