Dante Marioni

Black Reticello Gourd

Blown glass, 21.5"h x 12.5"w x 3"d, Item No. 11019,

Reticello, meaning net in Italian, is one of the most complex cane techniques used in studio glass.  Dante Marioni is a skilled master of this application, as demonstrated in this piece titled "Black Reticello Gourd."  Contemporary Glass Art aficionados will appreciate the bold shape and design common in Marioni's style.  The splash of blue as seen in the lip wrap and handles help balance the piece.
