Two heavy slabs of glass forming two very large petals, or a clam, are fused together in this bowl, the interior of which is iridescent. The colours, red and blue, were used specifically by Giorgio Ferro for his daring designs, cf. his Anse volante vases. Variations of the shape can be seen in works by Giulio Radi, Ferros predecessor as creative leader of the A.Ve.M. / Arte Vetrario Muranese. The back with fragmentary red and silver Murano label. Width "8/ 20 cm, height "3 ¼ / 8,5 cm. Condition: fine.
