Description


Rosemarie Benedikt is one of Austria's most recognized ceramicists with an international profile, and a unique glass-working artist. Glass animal sculptures feature prominently in her work and are therefore the focus of this book.

Glass blowing has been practiced for centuries to the highest standards of craftsmanship on Murano Island; under the supervision of the artist, her designs are incorporated in bright, colorful animal creatures at Studio Berengo. Individually or in imaginative combinations, often with subtle humor and a touch of irony, their color, radiance, and transparency are delightful to behold. Cats, ants, bees, fish and coati are favored images that capture the artist's original style in solid, yet weightless applications.
