In Focus: Leaf bowl by Venini

This 'Leaf' bowl by is regarded by many to be a masterpiece of craftsmanship by the Murano glassmakers Venini.

This particular design was created by Tyra Lundgren in 1938.

Tyra Lundgren was passionate about art and design from an early age and in 1922 she began designing tableware for the Moser factory in Karlsbach. Despite the success of her designs she decided to study sculpture in Vienna with Anton Hanak and painting in Paris.

Lundgren was deeply influenced by the artistic movement named “Valori Plastici”. Tyra's real success began when her ceramic works were presented at the Venice Biennial and the Triennial in Milan.

During the 1930s Lundgren began working with glass again and her international success captured the attention of Paolo Venini. She consequently began her collaboration with Venini in 1937 and her first
production line included a series of birds, fish and leaf bowls.
