Biography Ercole Barovier
Ercole Barovier is a unique figure in the history of 20th century Murano glass. As owner and principal art director of the Barovier firm, he personally designed every significant glass object produced there from the late 1920s until his retirement in 1972.
Beginning in 1933, Barovier designed a number of thick-walled vessels with unmelted pigment dispersed in clear glass as decoration. As the decade progressed he continued to design vessels composed of thick, clear glass This rare ability to deftly combine references from nature, history and contemporary art stands as testament to the flexible genius of Ercole Barovier and his long and successful career as a designer.
