GIULIO RADI MURANO GLASS VASES
Giulio Radi employed a very unusual technique that utilized gold and silver inclusions to create the shimmering surfaces characteristic of the experimental work of this distinguished Murano glass artist.
He also used the difficult technique of marquetry, in which decorative elements are inlaid into the glass. These fine and beautiful pieces are great examples of how these techniques come together to great effect.
From Primavera Gallery's collection of fine, mid-century Italian glass by Giulio Radi and other important Italian glass designers.
