Daniela Forti in an Italian artist that is presenting the world a new form to have a great meal: these glass art jellyfish inspired dining tables.
The Italian artist from Chianti, Tuscany likens her works to the sea-faring invertebrates because of the long, flowing tentacles she creates by hand through a melted glass fusion process. The result are one of a kind creations that seem to defy physics as they give the impression of large table tops being supported by the thinnest threads of glass. Truly impressive!
In 1979 she frequented the “Forme” artistic glass studio. She developed a particular expressive mastery of this material succeeding in manifesting her own creativity in the divergent process linking fluidity and heat to colors as to the hard and rigid transparency of glass in its natural state. Passing from interior design of prestigious shops to exposition space decoration, to honing her skills in artistic glasswork for sacred and religious places, Daniela Forti consolidated her mastery in the correlation between light and glass.
Form, color, taste and transparency linked together with a deep understanding of the materials used, translate the silent language of Daniela Forti’s glass sculpture across a glimmer of light and plasticity simplifying the artistic message while facilitating the immediacy of understanding. She delved, into a modality that was totally innovative and unique, the fusion technique, following a tenacious and long study which gave birth to a particular process of her own invention termed “multidimensional contemporary art”, from which a new series of art works and sculptures came to life.
