Vessel Gallery – the authority on contemporary glass
Founded in Notting Hill, London in 1999 Vessel Gallery aims to be a major destination for all those who appreciate contemporary art-glass sculpture and decorative lighting. From the stunning simplicity of Scandinavian crystal, via flamboyant Italian art glass, to the best of British and International creative talents, all pieces are unique or limited edition and have been carefully edited to show an unparalleled selection of contemporary design and craft.
Vessel Gallery also edits its own editions, an on-going programme working with emerging and established studio artists and designers, producing unique collections of exclusive limited edition art works in glass and other materials. The collections span from lighting, wall panels, hanging sculptures and interior objects. The majority of the collections are handcrafted by the artists and designers in their studios but also handmade in collaboration with skilled craftsmen from all over the world.
Round Opera Vase
Unique piece by Studio Salvadore.
The Salvadore brothers' works are captivating: the two artists from Murano, Venice concentrate on a few forms, simple, graceful elliptical shapes with layered colours and textures, all very labour and technique intensive. Their signature is the use of swathes of colour encased in transparent or opaque glass with large custom made murrine applied on the surface that are subsequent cut with traditional Venetian cutting techniques.
