Splatter Masterpiece

This take on the Jackson Pollock aesthetic as translated into glass comes from a Venetian glassblower who, like many before, was literally born into the craft. Born in 1965, Enrico Cammozzo was trained by his father and mentor in the traditions and secrets of the glass blowing techniques. This piece is outstanding in its craftsmanship...it appears to contain an entire gold bar's worth of gilding. Given its design and clear age to the label, we are placing this from the 80's, meaning Enrico would have be just in his early 20's at the time of its manufacture.
