This abstract Murano sculpture is entitled "Tango Dancer" by Murano Glass Master Oscar Zanetti circa 1970's. It's made using the massello technique where full, not blown glass is processed under heat by modelling a block of glassy mass applied over the tip of a metal rod. The type of glass is called Calcedonia - a vitreous paste with multi-colored vanes imitating natural chalcedony, zoned agate. As you can see by the pics, the colors are amazing! This is a huge piece measuring 20" and weighing 20 lbs. Thanks for looking.
