THE ALFIER COLLECTION
The Alfier Collection uses panels of glass rods of different colours that have been fused over a gold or platinum ground, and then slumped. The curved shapes that result are offset to create changing views and a glimpse inside of how the metals have reacted to the heat of the furnace.
The panels are designed and made by Alfier Glasstudio – Maurizio Alfier and his wife, Manuela Milan – in Marcon. Maurizio is Swiss and initially developed his modelling skills working for the eminent mask maker Guerrino Lovato, known in Venice as ‘The King of Masks’. Manuela is Venetian and, after working with the master Marco Fasolato, opened her own glass workshop, making decorative accessories and jewellery.They set up Alfier Glasstudio in 2006.
The colour combinations in our Alfier Collection are blue and silver green on chrome bases, and gold on a champagne gold base.They are 51cm high, and the shade is 28cm in diameter.
