Massimo Micheluzzi’s glassworks pay homage to the traditions of Murano whilst revealing a personal and uniquely modern aesthetic. His practice, embedded in the life and history of the city of Venice and inspired by its watery surroundings and architecture, is the result of constant experimentation.
His eclectic approach reflects the infinite creative possibilities of glass shifting between fluid and organic shapes, iridescent transparencies and opaque carved surfaces as well as elaborate colour combinations, mosaic patterns and sculptural forms.
"Glass is hard, inflexible and incorruptible by nature, mysterious in its essence
- a hard material to work.
If one mishandles glass or works with it without due care and attention, it will reveal its fragile nature. But if one truly loves glass and tries to understand its needs, it will reveal its infinite creative possibilities a bit at a time allowing for an extraordinary depth of colour and for the ‘mystery’ of lucid surfaces, which can be transformed into mesmerizing opacities.
My mission is to constantly discover glass hoping that it will slowly reveal more of its secrets to me."
