Mid Century Modern Sommerso Glass Bowl 1950s-60s
Item Details
Description
Biomorphic tree-leave shaped Sommerso bowl, with the crown-shaped label on the bottom, "Hand Made Genuine Hand Blown," the modernist style of the 1950s-1960s. The maker is unidentified. The bowl consists of three layers of glass: thin partially translucent opaque brownish-pink on top; milky white under it; clear glass coating.

The Sommerso technique was originally developed in the 1930's by Antonio Da Ross. Sommerso (Italian for "submerged") is the Murano glassmaking technique of creating two or more layers of contrasting glass without the colors mixing together. It is formed by dipping colored glass into molten glass of a different color, before blowing the glass into the required form. The outermost layer is often clear. During the 1950's, the Sommerso style became world famous due to the work of Flavio Poli, artistic director of Seguso Vetri d'Arte. There have since been many other factories in the Murano region which have made pieces in this style, and as such it is difficult to be certain of the manufacturer without labels or signatures present. Other well-known manufacturers that have produced glassware in the Sommerso style include Mandruzzato, Galliano Ferro, Formia, Oball, Arte Nuova and Luigi Onesto. ["Glass Encyclopedia"]
