Glass Egg N.1
Muriel Balensi is a French born artist who is based in Venice. She uses a technique that dates from the 19th century: she layers glass, colour and light and imbues each piece with conscious energy.
The work that Muriel does is considered part of "The Art of Venetian Glass Beads", a practice that comes under the Immaterial Heritage classification granted by UNESCO in January 2021.
A story of love, the eggs are made together with her partner Giovanni Nicola.
The Glass Egg is a hand sculpted unique piece with Murano Glass using the “Perle Sommerso” technique, which consists of submerging colored beads to create a multi layered effect.
