Since the thirteenth century the Venetian island of Murano has been the centre of Italian glass production. Early in the twentieth century Murano re-established its dominance in the world of art glass by mixing traditional craft with the innovative designs of modern artists and sculptors. Anzolo Fuga played a prominent role in its renaissance. A multi-faceted artist from a glass-making dynasty, Fuga created designs for A. V. E M. Arte Vetraria Muranese (Murano Art Glass House) that are, as author Rosa Barovier Mentasti writes 'extraordinarily modern for the time and possess a chromatic and decorative impact that still appear exceptional today. His works speak the language of the 1950s and '60s with such freshness that they do not look out of date in the most contemporary of environments'. Anzolo Fuga is the first monograph on this exceptional designer, whose works are collected worldwide. It is illustrated with over 170 colour photographs of spectacular objects never seen before. Along with a biography of the artist, Anzolo Fuga presents a catalogue of his works for A. V. E. M. Rosa Barovier Mentasti was born in 1948 into one of the oldest Muranese glass working families. She has been the curator or co-curator of many prestigious exhibitions in Italy and abroad since 1977. Aside from writing articles for numerous magazines and material on specialised glass techniques for reference books, Mentasti is the author of two important works: Venetian Glass from the Middle Ages to Today and Venetian Glass 1890-1990. SELLING POINTS: The first book to be published on Anzolo Fuga Includes a complete catalogue of Fuga's designs for the Italian art glass manufacturer A. V E. M. Fuga's works can be found in collections worldwide such as the Kunstmuseum, Düsseldorf, The Corning Museum of Glass and the Fondazione di Venezia as well as numerous private collections 176 colour & 6 b/w illustrations

"Two introductory essays trace the development of Italian art glass within the context of European glassmaking as a whole and examine the intimate world of glass manufacturing on Murano, with its unique combination of tradition and innovation. The superb color plates reproduce work by all the major designers and manufacturers. Italian art glass is not synonymous with Murano, however, and a notable feature of the book is the marvelous work produced in Milan by Erwin Burger and the firm Fontana Arte."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Glassmaking in Renaissance Venice

The transformation of the Venetian glass industry during the Renaissance was not only a technical phenomenon, but also a social one. In this volume, Patrick McCray examines the demand, production and distribution of glass and glassmaking technology during this period and evaluates several key topics, including the nature of Renaissance demand for certain luxury goods, the interaction between industry and government in the Renaissance, and technological change as a social process. McCray places in its broader economic and cultural context a craft and industry that has been traditionally viewed primarily through the surviving artefacts held in museum collections. McCray explores the social and economic context of glassmaking in Venice, from the guild and state level down to the workings of the individual glass house. He tracks the dissemination of Venetian-style glassmaking throughout Europe during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and its effects on Venice's glass industry. Integrating evidence from a wide variety of sources - written documents such as shop records and recipe books, pictorial representations of glass and glassmaking, and the careful physical and chemical analysis of glass pieces that have survived to the present - he examines the relation between consumer demand and technological change. In the process, he traces the organizational changes that signified a transition from an older and more traditional manner of 'artisan' manufacture to a modern, 'factory-style' manner of production.
