The Master Glassmaker ARCHIMEDE SEGUSO in Murano
The Archimede Seguso Artistic Glassware was founded in 1946 by Archimede Seguso (1909 – 1999), the greatest glass master of the 1900s, after leaving the family factory. The Segusos have been working glass on the island of Murano since 1350. Archimede begins to work on this precious material from the age of 11, following his passion and learning from his father Antonio and from the Masters with whom he collaborated. In 1936 he participated in the Venice Biennale. In the following years he made himself known to the general public for the skill, genius and innovation he gave to the world of Murano glass. The foundation of his Artistic Glassware gave him complete artistic independence. From the 1950s onwards, he “conquered” Italy with his chandeliers and with the new processing techniques he invented, such as “lace” and “feathers”. His wonderful creations are exhibited in museums all over the world: Metropolitan in New York, Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Ca’ Pesaro in Venice, Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas in Madrid, and many others. The Archimede Seguso Artistic Glassware has continued its activity always in the style of its founding Master; it also preserves many of its historical pieces, of great interest to collectors: beautiful chandeliers, vases, cups, sculptures, table furnishings, bathroom furnishings, Christmas decorations, mirrors.
