The work arises out of a happy meeting on Murano between creative excellences. The initial plan was for a large vase, and during the experimentation the idea emerged of using craquelure, the technique that gives the ruby pink surface its special and atmospheric effect. Water is the primordial element in which Venice is immersed and from which the uniqueness of the city springs. Venice is as if it were a mediator between nature and culture. The lagoon itself represents a unique natural element, as it is neither sea, nor lake, nor river. It is both salty and sweet and this makes it unclassifiable. The Coralla vase expresses well this blend, with its two-coloured essence where gold meets pink, producing the same hue as Venetian sunsets and Tiepolo’s clouds.
