Description

Stripes are everywhere in Venice. They are on the Gondoliers’ t-shirts and on the Gondola itself, as well as on the mooring posts’ coloration: “the Strica jug is once again a tribute to the city I love; Strica means stripe in Venetian!” The large lines run horizontally around the shape of the bottle, blown in see-through glass and is then engraved to obtain the special alternation between see-through and opaqueness, a combination that also makes the object extremely pleasant to the touch. The stripe decoration becomes even more evident once the jug is holding a beverage.

The pitcher is enriched by a thin ruby rim that closes the edge as it does in the glasses that match this object.

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.
