This is a very large sized and wonderful example Murano Sommerso glass sculpture of a pair of embracing lovers by Mario Badioli. A very clever technique of clear glass strapping over black glass. A very elegant and striking piece by this master glass blower. A very fashionable piece of art glass.
Born in Murano in 1940. At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to master glass blower Ermanno Nason, at the firm Mazzega I.V.M. From 1958 to 1960 he attended the Institute of Fine Arts in Venice, where he studied under Professor Angelo Fuga. In the same period started working, still with the same firm, Mazzega I.V.M., as a junior master. His first experience as a Maestro came in 1968 when he began working for Fratelli Pitau. He remained there for 10 years working on many different types of productions. From 1979 until late 1983 he worked for the firm Oball. His favorite artist was Picasso, but he was never able to meet him. After 1984, in his own glassworks-studio, he was finally able to work freely, and began working on glass sculptures seen and collected around the world today.
