Description:

Upon the Gran Canal was created for the 2018 Glass Art's Society Conference in Murano, Italy where it was modeled for the Glass Fashion Show in Boats, which carried models aboard gondolas down the Gran Canal of Murano. The piece drew inspiration from the intricate patterning of the embroidery and lace shown in classic Italian Renaissance paintings as well as the extravagant costuming of Venice's Carnival. Using glass, such an iconic material with a deep history tied to Murano, along with taking inspiration from the Italian culture it was to be displayed in, created a modern version of a timeless piece inspired by Italy's art and fashion history.
