The Sfere Sospese artwork is a personal interpretation of how to use glass in a pre-established structure. The basic iron structure, made with Giorgio Giuman, has not been refined: it has been left rough for a question of intuition. The intent was to give shape to a minimal structure that enhances the glass spheres. The four spheres, of which the blue two made by Matteo Tagliapietra and the red two by Fabiano Amadi, are hung in tension one close to the other by a thin metal chains. Thanks to this expedient, the suspended glass show its true essence of fragile and emotional material, to be admired, losing any practical or decorative function typical of glass objects resting on the ground. The suspended spheres therefore become the true expression of the Murano glass tradition: fragile but at the same time full of emotions.

LagunaB is an adventure, an occasion for me to proudly follow my mother’s footsteps by seeking the hidden art of each glass. Murano is history and our goal is to continue the history of Murano. Our purpose is to communicate and work with Murano and Venice on projects that keep alive it’s great glass industry, unrivalled for centuries. We want to make Murano and Venice an international meeting point and a creative factory for artists and people worldwide. One of our main ambitions for the future is education. We want to give to the students and visitors the opportunity to discover what Murano is still capable to offer and imagine new links between Murano and the rest of the world, giving a wide view on the many glass processing techniques of its tradition.
