There are several amazing elements to this large egg shape sculpture – from the beautiful sommerso colors to the various uses of bubbles and inclusions. However, the ‘Sbruffi’ is the thin shell of brilliant yellow that defines the middle of the piece.
Mariano Moro was born on the small island of Burano, Venice in 1957. At 13 years old he began working with glass at the renowned “Cristalleria Santi” factory on the Island of Murano. During this time Mariano learned the closely guarded secrets that are in the hands and minds of many Murano glass masters. At 20 years old, Mariano decided to move to the factory of Livio Seguso, now a legend in the history of Murano and international contemporary glass art. The guidance of masters Roberto Cammozzo and Elio Raffaeli of Ars Murano, continued to improve Mariano’s skills as a master in the art of glass sculpture. Mariano Moro now creates modern pieces and sculptures for which Ars Murano is famous both on Murano and internationally.
