Important heavy piece from Licio Zanetti.
This is in green quartz color and carries a deep corroso finish.
Licio worked mostly in the 70s and 80s with Pauly and many other artists, belong to Seguso Vetri d’Arte melting pot where Barbini, Pino Signoretto and Ermanno Nason worked.
The finish was used by Carlo Scarpa for Venini on the prewar Biennale shows, showing the typical love of Carlo Scarpa for texture and elements of Brutalist theories.
The Corroso finish is actually created from real corrosion, conducted using the only acid that etches the glass, fluoridric acid, and left acting over the glass surface in order to create an interesting finish. Whilst Carlo Scarpa at Venini used damped wood dust, here Licio used a different method. Licio used a natural sponge to apply wax to the glass in order to protect areas. The subsequent effect is a deep and beautiful etching on the surface.
Important size and weight. It’s 56 cm tall, 22″.
