Antonio De Rossi - The Figurative Murrina
The Murrina is a meticulous micromosaic formed by strands of glass of innumerable shades that make up the subject to be represented.
The composition, the cylinder created (usually the Murrina is circular) is 11cm in diameter by 7/8 cm high. The shape is then fused and pulled in the furnace; thinned in diameter it transforms a rod that will later be cut in section into thin discs thus obtaining a miniature of the original design.
Antonio dei Rossi, a Venetian, son of Art for Figurative Murrina, Master Glassmaker is also a designer and an artist and gives continuity to his glass works by setting them in his jewelry or vases, to objects for furniture and fashion as well as for art installations.
