volkhard precht – vase | c. 1975

 


a vase by volkhard precht made from blue bubble glass. this type of glass was developed by napoleone martinuzzi in the 1920s for venini and called pulegoso. many muranese manufacturers followed and later in the 1930s other european manufacturers too. in the 1970s volkhard precht resumed this type of glassmaking for his own work. it underlines the archaic appearance of this square vase in a special way. [hot glass, h. 22cm]
