Seguso Vetri d’Arte
Seguso Vetri d’Arte (antonio seguso ) founded in 1933, quickly became one of the most important glass furnaces in Murano and the center of creative energy and technical innovation on the island during the mid twentieth century.
Flavio Poli, who had already had a name in the company I.V.A.M. worked a lot with external glass blowers, e.g. Archimede Seguso. He became a partner.
Archimede.Seguso.’s passion was to work with very thick material and the inclusion of metal particles and air bubbles (= Bulicante glass). At the Biennale hot-modelled animals, vases in Coroso- and Bulicante technique were shown
At the Biennale of 1948 lightweight vases with coloured ribbons were shown. At the height of his artistic development (1950 to 1960), Flavio Poli designed whole series of Sommerso objects in simple forms. They were characterised by the use of gold colour and the contrast between a thick and heavy bottom and a very delicate and thin edging.Segusu vetri d’ one of the most importend art glass
