Sculpture in Murano glass
Giunone is a Murano glass table sculpture with Murrina millefiori beads and gold leaf. 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. Like the mosaic technique this is realized using pastel and transparent Murano glass in a combination of colors, blended with gold leaves. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand. As for the mosaic technique, also in this design multicolored glass rods are meticulously cut and joined together.
Giunone is, above all, a decorative element, which is lit through an original system that consists of a G9 lamp-holder (CE marked), which is attached to the metallic base of the sculpture through a magnet.
The leaf shape has been chosen in order to give a dynamic aspect to an already shiny object, given the variety of colors present in the glass.
