About The Artist:

Fulvio Bianconi was born in 1915 near Venice, Italy. He had a keen predisposition for drawing and the visual arts. He was always searching for new forms of artistic expressions. In 1945, on assignment by the Milanese Company GI.VI.M to design a series of perfume bottles at the Venini Furnace- he first came to glass and Murano. Here he worked with glass masters Ermete and Arturo Biassuto and his passion for glass was born. His work was initially not accepted by the Murano furnaces because his glass objects were different and made with his own hands rather than conforming to their usual production of drinking glasses, mirrors, vases and lamps. Ultimately, the master glass makers were waiting to work with him when he traveled to Murano. Fulvio Bianconi, because of his passion and financial independence (due to his early work at Garzanti) was able to create with absolute freedom of expression. He created hundreds and hundreds of 'unique examples' of glass having no ties or obligations to any commissioner. Fulvio Bianconi passed away in Milan, Italy in 1996.
