Blown glass monoflower vase

Archaeologists have been unable to gain a deeper understanding
of the history of antique glass. Due to its fragility, it is hard to
obtain an intact or partially intact sample from excavation sites,
furthermore, unlike clay and paint, it is impossible to establish the
original location where the object was made due to the natural
characteristics of the material. Archeologically speaking, glass is
more rare than ceramic since, even in ancient times, it was often recycled.

The inspirations for this vase come after a trip to Jordan, from the city of Jerash and from the fascination for the that typical opulent aesthetic derived from the fusion between the Roman Empire and its middle eastern provinces. The iconography of the date, with its exquisite shades of amber and its uneven texture,
still has a modern appeal today. It is for these reasons that we decided to bring it back to life through the skilled hands of our maestro glassblower. Every vase is a unique piece created using the mouth-blowing technique in the island of Murano. Rome meet Venice for an homage to the Middle East.
