She returned later, in 1948, and designed manifold forms of the Calla. She was the first freelance artist at the Venini glass-works. Tyra designed the shapes but the surface patterns were designed by Carlo Scarpa (corroso, tessuto, battuto, mezza-filigrana etc.)She designed a group of four fenicio Calla vases (model numbers 3861-64) and four snakes (model numbers 2951-2954; ill. 10 and page xx). Venini presented these at the 1948 Biennale, the same Biennale where he presented Bianconi’s Commedia Dell’Arte figurines. Though the design of the Calla vases is sublime and beautiful, they were overshadowed by Bianconi’s work. On January 28, 1950, a retrospective exhibition of her works was presented at Nordiska Kompaniet. It included her wartime ceramics, textiles and some “glass bowls” produced by Venini.For references to this design, see: Venini Catalog Raisonne 1921 - 1986, Anna Venini Diaz de Santillana, 2000, page 220; also Il Vetro di Murano alle Bienalli 1895 - 1972, Barovier, Mentasti and Dorigato, 1995, page 59; also I Vetri Venini, Franco Deboni, 1989, color plate 90.
