Anna Gili began designing glass in 1992 with the company Salviati di Murano, a collaboration that continues today, with the release of numerous collections: "Vasi del mare" 1992, "Rigati" 1996, "Profili" 1997, "Canneto" 1998 , "Torri" 1999, "Bulbi" 2000, "Profili" extending editions 2010.

SEE VASES

The “Vasi del mare”, are free forms of hand-blown glass, inspired by the flora and fauna of the sea. In this work, glass is associated with the sea. “… and like the sea, in its transparency it reveals the creatures that populate its depths” … an infinity of shapes that multiply themselves in infinite chromatic variations that can be created in the furnaces of Murano in Venice.

RIGATI

Anna Gili in the “Rigati” collection, experiments with the use of the technique of glass pipes to create new shapes set on a concept of colour based on geometry.

The structure is composed of lines of coloured strips that cover the entire surface of the glass, and they follow the sinuous forms of the vases. The “Rigati” originate from a technical virtuosity based on the tension of the glass pulled at the ends for the creation of the handles and cuts of the mouth of the amphora.

CANNETO

Canneto is a limited collection of vases, a part of the Indianapolis Museum collection..

It comes from a technical virtuosity. The thickness of the glass is truly exceptional for a hand-blown vase. The processing of which in grinding, makes it evident the technical skill between the two thicknesses that we see in the section: that one of the glass pipes and the other whole one.

TOWERS

The “Torri” vases are derived from the experimentation of the limited edition vase “Canneto”. The play of the “Torri” vases is given by the alternation between coloured overlaid glass with porcelain effect and a transparent glass finish obtained with a special grinding technique ‘molatura’. The different rings from the widest to the narrowest, that seem to overlap with each other like a tower, are the combinatorial play, that gives the name to the collection
