This listing is for a SIGNED sought after, collectable, original Chalcedony art glass figurine. It was made by the MURANO artist ANDREA TAGLIAPIETRA, Italy. I have photographed the figurine on every side to show the complex patterns, and shapes the chalcedony creates with fused colour with clear glass. Every different angle makes the light catch differently and changes the look.... The blues, greens and browns of the natural mineral chalcedony are a true beauty in themselves but greatly enhanced and magnified in glass in the hand of such a great artist.
I have included 3 photos which show another signature of the artist on a different artwork for comparison.... Also two photos of prices I have found.... The base is signed by the artist Andrea Tagliapietra.
Excerpts from the Murano glass maker..... Tue Love cannot be matched especially the love that two lovers feel for each other. Some say that only once in a lifetime two lovers get a day when they succeed in all their beginnings.....But we decided to make this glorious moment of two lovers infinite. Made of rare Caledonia glass, a perfect material for such a figure. Murano glass Calcedony is ancient and extremely rare types of Murano glass. The shades and colouring of Chalcedon is cannot be controlled or predicted, which creates the unpredictable beauty of every piece. The technique of creating was lost three times, just to be reinvented centuries after. Artefacts created from Calcedony glass is considered as one of the most treasured items of many well-known art museums. At the current time there are only few craftsmen that are capable of creating this marvellous piece of artwork.
This Calcedony articl is hand made by famous world wide artist, ANDREA TAGLIAPIETRA..... Base diameter: 2 1/4 (6cm).
