Description

“The Lola jug – dedicated to my first-born -, is based on the most classic pitchers made in Murano: cylindrical shape with a marked lip and the handle blown separately and hot sealed on the glass. I wanted it made in a fire-red color, just as the immense and intense sunsets that characterize Venice’s lagoon. I then enriched it with a platinum rim to better define the profile and allow the contrasts of lights and color to reflect on each other and highlight the materials, even when put next to very different ones”. The jug goes perfectly with the Vaso glasses as they have the same color tonality.

The Lola pitcher can become a unique and personalized object by engraving initials, logos, insignias, date and anything else one may desire.

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.
