Italian Pendant by Toni Zuccheri for Venini
Toni Zuccheri (1936-2008) was one of the most prominent Italian glass artists of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. After studying architecture in his native Venice - with Franco Albini, Ignazio Gardella and Carlo Scarpa as his professors - Zuccheri joined Venini. At Venini he initially collaborated with Gio Ponti on several projects, but soon had his own designs executed as well: Ranging from glass birds to mystical abstract compositions. Though Zuccheri spent most of his active career at Venini, he also worked for other Muranese companies, like VeArt, Barovier & Toso and De Majo. This particular pendant was executed circa 1970 and displays a rare combination of two Zuccheri glass techniques: the Membrane and Volcano technique.
