ELIOS - Sculpture in Murano glass

Elios is a leaf-shaped golden glass sculpture. This sculpture is mounted on a painted metal base.

The procedure to create this sculpture is very complex and laborious. The first step is to compose the sequence of colors, while the second one is to create the shape. It is realized using pastel and transparent Murano glass, blended with gold leaves. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand.

In Greek mythology Helios was the personification of the Sun. The sculpture is dedicated to this titan.
