gaetano pesce's five glassmaking techniques at murano glass museum

throughout his long career, italian architect, sculptor and designer gaetano pesce has experimented to extraordinary effect with the multiple possibilities of working in any material. his particular passion for glassmaking has even led him to invent a technique of his own which can produce highly original results. in his unsubsidized research into formal and functional solutions, peace has experimented with a whole range of techniques, such as those on display at the ‘five glassmaking techniques’ exhibition at the murano glass museum, opened during the venice art biennale.

set within the spazio conterie of the museo del vetro di murano, gaetano pesce’s exhibition positions glass as its main character. by using extreme means of experimentation, each one of the pieces presented are unique and unrepeatable, with forms that challenge traditional practices, resulting in an artistic message. alongside these extraordinarily precious glassworks are others created using the techniques of pastis, joliette, vieux port, pâte de verre and plage. by adding his own take on these customary methods, pesce has adopted and reworked in a contemporary key.

the investigative spirit of the exhibition and its desire to narrate a major creative phase in gaetano pesce’s work focuses extensively on his expressive language, showing how in shaping glass he is able to optimally combine his exceptional sense of form with the volatility of this extraordinary material, producing unexpected and playful results.
