Sculpture in Murano glass
Gaia is a leaf-shaped golden glass sculpture. This sculpture is mounted on a painted metal base. This object can be used as a decorative sculpture as a centerpiece, as a lamp.
The procedure to create this sculpture is very complex and laborious. The first step is to compose the sequence of colors, while the second one is to create the shape. It is realized using pastel and transparent Murano glass, blended with gold leaves. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand. Also for this design, the Murano glass is meticulously cut and joined together to form this sculpture shaped like a leaf.
In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. The sculpture is dedicated to this deity.
