As a descendant of a family that has been specialized in making Murano glass for generations, it was Carlo Nason who changed his course in relation to his relatives. While father Vincenzo was mainly concerned with traditional and beautifully decorated glass works, Carlo joined the modernist movement and started experimenting. In addition to designs for manufacturers I TRE, Kalmar, Vistosi, Murano Due, and Firme di Vetro, among others, he has had a longstanding collaboration with Mazzega.The urge to produce modern lamps led Nason to collaborate with Gianni Mazzega. A good friend of the family. The 1970s and 1980s that followed were his most creative and productive years and he was responsible for the vast majority of Mazzega's designs.

Design

This beautiful floor lamp called “Cactus” consists of a metal construction that is cross-connected with rods at four different heights. These also serve directly as a fixture for the four light sources that are positioned at an appropriate distance from each other. There are numerous round hooks on the frame on which the glass leaves can be hung. By means of adjustment screws it is possible to determine whether the leaves hang out a bit more or, when the screws are tightened, come closer to the frame. The leaves come in three different sizes respectively small, medium and large, and can be hung in various ways.The specific technique used for the twenty-five glass leaves is called ghiacco and is characterized by the cracked appearance. This effect is achieved by dipping the hot glass in cold water to first crack the surface. Later, the cracks are covered with another layer of molten glass. The result of this process is that the cracks appear through a clear layer of glass as if they were made of ice. When the lights are off, the glass has a breathtaking changing blue glow, while when the lights are turned on, a yellow warm haze is added.

Condition

The condition of the lamp is very good and its frame shows a diffuse patina. Minor scratches and color differences can be seen on the frame.

This bar is amazing. Beautiful and exactly as described. A custom crate (which was a work of art itself) was built in order to ship the piece to the U.S. The bar arrived in perfect condition without a scratch. I will say that take the crate apart was not easy and was a two-person job. But worth it in the end

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
