Serena Luxury Mosaic: Italian Exclusivity on Murano blown glass

Category:

In the wonderful setting of Cà Sagredo, was officially opened on June 29 the exhibition of a collection of exclusive masterpieces Serena Luxury Mosaic, that can be visited from June 30 to September 16. The opening also saw the participation of Rosa Barovier Mentasti, Glass Historian, and Chiara Tavella, Art and Mosaic Critic: together with Michelangelo Serena, the two experts accompanied the guests on a fascinating, yet contemporary, journey through time, in order to tell the story of Serena Luxury Mosaic – an excellence in the world of Glass and Mosaic Art.

Serena Luxury Mosaic is one of the main exponents of the traditional art and luxury handicraft of Italian blown glass. Born in 1987, after studying architecture Michelangelo Serena rediscovered the potential of the traditions of his ancestors who, in the 1500s, invented the prestigious filigree glass technique in Murano, Venice. “I was fascinated by the connection between ancient traditions and skilful artisanal techniques”, says Michelangelo Serena about the start of his project, which led him to the creation of Serena Luxury Mosaic in 2015: the goal is to create a new expressive medium that, for the first time in history, combines Murano blown glass and artistic mosaic.

Every piece is carefully designed according to the artistic sensibility of its creator, who crafts each piece by hand and follows its production in one of the oldest glassmaker workshops in Murano. Then, the pieces are brought to the Spilimbergo lab, where Michelangelo applies the mosaic tiles with the help of talented mosaicists. The unique nature of this process, as well as the characteristics of the materials themselves, ensure that the shape and colour of the blown glass, combined with the shades and the positioning of the magical mosaic tiles, come together to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces. “My project starts from ancient traditions and is realised with the latest technological innovations: this allows me to give a new, lighter dimension to the mosaic by applying the tiles on the glass with a specific transparent glue”, adds Michelangelo Serena.
