This is one of the most unusual and rarest Murano Somerso block vases we have had in our collection with very striking colours. A thick glass body with a deep scoop of dark royal blue over a very unusual pinky copper colour fading in to clear. The vase still has its original label. We have tried to use the bright white light & natural sun light to show the real beauty of this stunning glass vessel. A very fashionable piece of art glass originally made on the Island of Murano. This is a particularly hard to find piece in this extra large size.
Sommerso is a term for a technique used to make coloured glass in all shapes and forms. The basic principle of sommerso involves submerging different colors beneath clear glass to form coloured glass creations that can include vases, sculptures and beads. Sommerso glass is known for its shine, color and dramatic effect.
The sommerso technique is unique. It features a solid colour of molten glass fused with a second layer of clear glass that serves to preserve the color of the first layer without allowing it to fade into the second layer. Coloured layers of glass are sealed within layers of clear glass. Clear layers are blended together to create form and shape without degrading any of the colours contained in the design. Generally, the technique is achieved by dipping a solid glass object into a layer of molten glass.
