Luxury Design, Past & Present
This Murano Studio Glass One-Off hollow bowl is a result of the collaboration of Andries Dirk Copier and Italian master glassblower Lino Tagliapietra, Murano, 1981.
It is signed on the underside of the foot: 'Lino Tagliapietra A.D. Copier maggio 81 effetre international' (Vibro -engraving); '81 05 03' (diamond point engraving).
The tazza-like hollow bowl has spiraling white threading and striking appliqués in blue, yellow and white. It is a squat cone on a conical flaring hollow foot; the upper depression achieved by the vacuum technique. The opening is blown or created by suction in the slightly domed foot.
This item is described and documented in the publication 'Andries Dirk Copier. Ideas in glass. Unica and more' by Dieter Enke (publisher: Arnoldsche, 2009). A copy of this book will be included.
