Angelfish Sculpture

Mario Pinzoni, c.1964-66

Seguso Vetri d'Arte, Italy

Sold! (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

A scarce example of a large and abstract massello sculpture of an Orinoco angelfish in bright crystal glass with bonded cut/polished trapezoidal prism base in a dark smoke-green colour, designed by Mario Pinzoni for Seguso Vetri d'Arte, Murano, c.1964-66.

The design of the fish, though minimalist in nature, is very dynamic, with the form caught in a moment of curved locomotion.

Massello glass, or 'full' glass, is made without being blown, but is instead formed entirely by physical manipulation whilst hot.

Related sculptures are shown in both the 1964 and 1966 Seguso catalogues.
