About The Artist:

The a macchie (with patches) series of vases was exhibited on the occasion of the 25th Venice Biennale in 1950. It included several types of glass objects, including pieces with abstract decorative compositions with superimposed macchie like the subject. In some cases the decoration was developed around the wall of the piece, in others it is on the main face, or in most cases it is on two opposite sides. Of particular significance are the vases with abstract decorations, which display knowledge of the significant Italian artistic developments of the 1950s, particularly those taking place in Milan and Venice.
