Very large Soffiato vase model 5013. Soffiato glass was created with the technique of thinly blown, transparent, one colored glass translated closely to reveal a direct relationship to the drawing by Vittorio Zecchin (born 1878-1947) Murano, Italy. He was an influential Italian glass designer, attracted clientele of the time when his glass design evoked ancient and Renaissance classical styles while also fostering a new modern subtlety. This example expresses all the classical features in its ribbed urn shaped form and its semi precious color of amber. Zecchin collaborated with glassworks M.V.M. Cappellin & co, founded by Giacomo Cappellin in 1925. Zecchin's impact on Italian artists and designers was energized by the avant-garde point of view in Venice during the early years of the 20th century.
