Murano vase, 2020
Hand blown glass, made in Murano, Italy
Unique vase designed by Melvin Anderson, specially made for WonderWood
Height: 46 cm
Melvin Anderson (Aruba, 1944) worked for fashion houses around the globe from his Milan-based studio for fabric design, before working with glass. His sense of colour and texture as well as his ability to capture the zeitgeist enticed customers from the U.S. to Japan. Just over ten years ago, Anderson felt the need to take his career in a new direction. Following a suggestion from a friend, he visited Murano and was fascinated by the glass here.
The material has been a revelation to him. More than ever, Anderson’s designs exude his personality. Northern European clarity meets Italian warmth, traces of Africa mix with a longing for the Caribbean. Strong, rich colours and graphic lines appeal to -again- an international crowd of collectors, galleries, museums and design stores worldwide.
Specially for WonderWood, Anderson designed this unique vase with a playful design in thick clear glass with a beautiful opalescent shine.
