Rainbow Soul - imaginative art work from Adriano Dalla Valentina
Artist: Adriano Dalla Valentina
About the Artist: Glass Master Adriano Dalla Valentina is famous for making abstract art works in glass that are prized across the world. He was born in Murano in 1945 and started working in glass making when only 10 years old. At 24, he opened his own furnace and quickly became renowned as one of the greatest Masters in glass making. He is a master of many glass working techniques but is acclaimed for the local Murrina and Filigrana styles. He mentors young glassmakers and his exhibitions and creations are widespread.
The Rainbow Soul is a complex glass piece that makes one feel the warmth and fluid presence of a human core.
On the surface it looks sleek and smooth but a closer look reveals unbelievable layers of complexity. The inner white netting and capillaries spiral beautifully in a controlled manner, enhanced by the range of blue colors that meld subtly as one changes the angle of viewing. This piece will entrance perfectionist and art aficionado alike.
We are attaching a few photographs of Maestro Adriano in the midst of his creation.
(Glassware entirely produced by hand, like all our Murano items, can never be perfectly uniform. Slight differences in dimensions or tiny bubbles in the glass cannot be entirely avoided. In fact, all this increases the value of the piece since this indicates the genuineness of the hand-made glass.)
