Large vase in black glass with four ribbed handles
The use of black glass suits the power of the sculptor in the creation of a work of unusual grandeur. This model in black glass was also produced in clear coloured glass and in incamiciato (cased) glass with finish in a streaked pasta vitrea in imitation of chalcedony glass.
