Large 1980s Fratelli Toso Murano Venetian Sommerso Art Glass Centrepiece Vase. The Sommerso technique was originally developed in the 1930's by Antonio Da Ross. Sommerso (Italian for "submerged") is the Murano glassmaking technique of creating two or more layers of contrasting glass without the colours mixing together. It is formed by dipping coloured glass into molten glass of a different colour, before blowing the glass into the required form.The outermist layer is often clear. During the 1950's the Sommerso style became world famous due to the work of Flavio Poli, artistic director of Seguso Vetri d'Arte. Wonderful sculptural flower vases with very defined rich colour glass. The simplicity of the design is quite obviously that of the master, perfectly executed, and an effortless design statement. Piece is in perfect condition without any chips or cracks.
