Gaetano Pesce Fish design vase Murano Italy 1994





Extremely rare glass vase designed by Gaetano Pesce and manufactured by Fish Design in Italy in 1994. These vases were all unique, This vase was executed in Murano, and only made in very small production in different colours. Beautiful thin glass with really nice and strong colours like blue, orange, red and green. A feast for the eyes. The vase has a interesting form consisting of sixteen rounded edges making one round shape. The top is more tapered than the bottom making it look very interesting. The is a small blowing mistake in the vase, which often occurs with these difficult shapes and thin glass.


Provenance; Wende Kunsthandel, private collection Köln.


Gaetano Pesce, an architect-artist-designer based in New York City, has undertaken diverse commissions in architecture, urban planning, interior and exhibition design, industrial design and publishing. In more than forty years of practice, Pesce has conceived public and private projects in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia, from residences to gardens and corporate offices. Pesce’s extensive body of work – recognized for its emotive and tactile qualities, unrestrained use of color, and insistence upon innovative building materials developed through new technologies – has been described by prominent architecture critic Herbert Muschamp as “the architectural equivalent of a brainstorm”.


Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939, Gaetano Pesce was trained at the University of Venice Faculty of Architecture. He has lived in Padova, Venice, London, Helsinki, Paris and, since 1980, New York. Pesce has served as a visiting lecturer and professor at many prestigious institutions in America and abroad, including the Cooper Union in New York. During 28 years, he has been a faculty member at the Institut d’Architecture et d’Etudes Urbaines in Strasbourg, France. Gaetano Pesce has also worked in Italy, Germany, Belgium, Japan, the United States, and Brazil, which has influenced the internationalism of his approach.
