If you think that glass does not involve anything other than ordinary household products, think again. Italian artisan Daniela Forti uses a unique process to create incredibly surreal and unique translucent artworks, and may remind you of a familiar sea creature.
Although Forti hails from Rome, she claims to be famous for her mastery of the refined Tuscan tradition. The 57-year-old woman has been living and working in the hills of Chainti since 1982, and defends her hard earned reputation as a veterinary teacher with her latest collection, appropriately named Meduse, the Italian name for jellyfish. She produces these impressive sculptures through the fusion of glass, a technique that involves strategically melting solid pieces of glass until they merge and merge, forming new and beautiful shapes. In the case of Meduse, gravity is the instrument that helps Forti create the realistic “tentacles” they possess.
See the sublime creations by yourself below, and if you are lucky enough to pass through Tuscany, you can visit Daniela Forti’s permanent exhibition of glass jewelery at the Palazzo Tucci Hotel in Lucca.
