Historical Context:
Francesco Ragazzi was born in Murano, Italy, and began his training in the art of glassmaking when he was 16. Murano is a small island in the Adriatic sea near Venice known for its history of glass blowing dating back to the 1200s. Ragazzi creates glass for the historic Eugenio Ferro & Company, which was established in 1929. This work, inspired by the ocean, demonstrates a long-standing tradition of innovative and modern glass making techniques.
