Description

After having created the beloved Red Rothko glass in red and yellow, Giberto wanted to experiment with other color combinations inspired by the Latvia-born American painter. Grey and blue are often present in the artist’s canvases and the combination of the two is quite modern and strong. To Rothko, the grey represented the lunar landscapes American astronauts had just discovered in 1968.

With these hues in mind, Giberto sailed to Murano where he spoke with Master glassblower Gianni Seguso. The conversations and the later production brought to the creation of the Blue Rothko. The glass Master used the antique and complex “incalmo” technique to unite the two color nuances.

The Designer

The life of Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga is viscerally linked to Venice. His childhood memories, the most beautiful, are those that have taken place in the rooms of Palazzo Papadopoli, between frescoes of Tiepolo and family affection. “In my earliest memories Venice had other colours. It was more obscure, dramatic, decayed and deeply romantic – simply beautiful. There wasn’t the same light like there is today – more dazzling perhaps, but less poetic.”

Craftmanship

Each piece derives from a watercolour sketch made by Giberto on tracing paper: “When I see something that inspires me, or an object that I like, I sketch and rework it – then move on to the realization of it.”

The glass, the main material in the collections, is worked exclusively in Murano. Each glass, each specific object, is blown by master glassmakers in the Venetian furnaces.

Giberto takes his watercolours to discuss with them and refine the project, check its feasibility, and to make eventual changes.
