New appointment of Forme d’Acqua with The Venice Glass Week, an international festival dedicated to celebrating, supporting and promoting the art of glassmaking, promoted by the Town Council of Venice, and conceived and organized by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, Fondazione Giorgio Cini – Le Stanze del Vetro, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, and takes place in Venice and Mestre from 7th to 15th September 2019.
Also this year the company from Cavallino-Treporti, specialized in the creation of indoor and outdoor artistic fountains and water features, presents a project that combines artistic glasswith water, similar and parallel elements, that will be exposed until November 24th.
In RHYTHMUS H2O the water comes out from the top of steel pipes creating a water curl that, running slowly and quietly, wraps the hand-blown Murano glass elements along its path.
The stems, inspired by the efflorescence of the Typha, which grows luxuriantly in the canals that lead to the Venetian lagoon, stretch and become full-bodied, with transparent grafts and alternating bands of color, to remember the piles on which Venice arose and the rhythm of the tides which form the delicate balance on which the fragile city rests. Gold and silver alternate, interacting with light and water in their continuous modification.
A slow and steady rhythm, that of water, which touches the glass elements exalting its vibrant beauty: the crystal with the silver leaf of the lighter parts alternates in contrast with darker inserts, made by superimposing two or three layers of black polished at the crystal base, then finished with pure gold leaf. The elements were handmade by Maestro Nicola Moretti and blown into a wooden mold.
Come to see this water feature every day from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm until Sunday, September 15th, at Bauer Palazzo S.Marco 1459, Venice.
