Glass masters
Luca Vidal

Colour dominates over shape in Luca Vidal’s works: the imaginative blend of murrine and filigrane prepared by the Master, following his effort in a everlasting quest for beauty, form one-of-a kind interweavings and combinations, creating vibrant works of art exhibited in various Italian and American art galleries.

Having grown up in a family of fishermen on the island of Burano, Luca Vidal began learning the art of crafting glass at the very young age of 14, working at the side of the Master Imperio Rossi. However, notwithstanding the fact that he was a quick learner, his apprenticeship continued for a decade, during which he learned to master the most advanced techniques of the glassmaking art, and to refine his own natural talent.

Having specialized in crafting works of contemporary artistic glass pieces, Master Vidal has especially dedicated himself to the creation of vases, cups and centrepieces that have a unique and unmistakable style: their colours are stretched out and unravelled in order to enhance their hues, in symmetries and geometries that alternate with each other in tandem with luminous transparencies, giving shape to a living beauty that the Master’s sensibility manages to further exalt with a molatura (fine grinding) that is able to cause glossiness to dialogue with the opaqueness, smoothness with roughness, the concave with the convex.

Luca Vidal’s exceptional ability has made it possible for him to collaborate with masters such as Pino Signoretto as well as with internationally renowned designers.

When visiting the Venier glassworks you have the sensation of being in an ancient renaissance workshop where the ceaseless work is intertwined with the masters’ creativity, with knowledge of the materials, with rigor, with the desires of noble ladies and patrons, and with the reverent obedience of the assistants.

The Master Glassmakers are undoubtedly the key figures. From a very early age (10-12 years), they have shared their existence with the incandescent glow of glass: the experience and traditions of centuries live in them, renewed through the specialization in few, if not in only one, work process for which they are known and held in high esteem: there is he who as a matter of fact is the master in lamps, he who is the master in sculptures, he who is the master in vases … and they have gained a renown that has even reached important Heads of State and their works are displayed in the most famous museums of the world.
