Sculpture of two Sharks in Murano glass, made using the Massello and Calcedonio techniques.
The calcedonio finish creates special effects depending on how the sculpture is lighted and from where you look at it. The artwork is made up of base plus two sharks that are attached on the base with metal studs, granting maximum security for shipping and in the event of relocation.
Its peculiar colors are due to the calcedonio technique. The coloring effect is obtained by adding to the molten glass a mixture based on different metal oxides. The results are incredible.
Hand-made in Murano by Andrea Tagliapietra, following the ancient Murano glass techniques.
