The Glass Masters: Flavio Poli

Flavio Poli (1900-1984) was one of the unparalleled masters of Murano glass. Born in Chioggia, a seaside town near Venice, Poli started collaborating with the distinguished firm, Seguso Vetri d’Arte and eventually became its artistic direct in the second half of the 1930s. During the 1950s, his works in submerged glass – made by overlapping different layers of glass, with a variety of consistency and colors – were exhibited in various editions of Venice’s Biennale and Milan’s Triennale, as well as in the Brussels World Fair.. Today, his gem-like glassworks are held in international museums, including the Murano Glass Museum in Venice, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.
