Sculptural ‘Oriente’ vase designed by Dino Martens and made by Aureliano Toso, Italy 1960. In excellent condition. This vas is part of his “Oriente” series, known for its unique pinwheel latticino design. Martens was a famous painter who started creating designs for Aureliano Toso back in 1938. This vase is made of Murano glass with many colours and patterns. Martens was a master at using traditional techniques to achieve original effects. He played with bold shapes and unexpected colours to create truly unique art.
Martens was born in Turin, Italy. He started his artistic career as a painter, but was soon attracted to glass art. In 1926 he joined the Venetian glass company Aureliano Toso, where he worked closely with master glassblower Antonio Salviati. During his career, Martens designed glassworks for many Italian companies, including Venini, Seguso Vetri d’Arte and Aureliano Toso.
He was known for his ability to create complex and colorful glass pieces, which were often inspired by nature and organic shapes. In the 1950s, Martens began working for the glass company Aureliano Toso, where he created more abstract and modern glass pieces using spun glass and sand etching techniques.
