Time spent on the Island of Glass has profoundly influenced Mattia Bonetti’s practice, and the modern art collection is imbued with the texture of the environment. His palette of green, gold, yellow, white, and blue evokes watery reflections and huge skies, as well as the art and architecture of Venice.

For an artist as versatile as Mattia Bonetti, a single aesthetic is never enough and he brings a contemporary element to the collection with his ‘Grate’ pieces, Bonetti has taken small sticks of glass, classic Murano elements, and crisscrossed them into a geometric and modern design.

While Mattia Bonetti has worked with glass once before, at CIRVA (Centre International de Recherche sur le Verre et les Arts Plastique), in Marseilles, under the tutelage of maestro Lino Tagliapietra, this collection is a departure for him, requiring an unprecedented level of research.

Bonetti’s fascination with the centuries-old process of free-blowing and the magic of turning a piece of glass into a molten mass before its transformation into a nuanced object led him to Murano. Here, he was able to translate his detailed sketches, working closely with the island’s renowned artisans.
