Exclusive to Dunell's in Jersey, a brand new collection of hand-blown glassware from world-renowned Murano glass blower, Massimo Lunardon. Neil and Jane had the great pleasure of meeting Massimo in Frankfurt and instantly fell in love with him and his incredible talent.
When Massimo needs inspiration, he lets his mind and body wander. "I like to get lost in old libraries, walk into local markets, and visit the hidden places of the European capitals," he says, citing Le Marais in Paris and Portobello Road in London. It's this come-what-may attitude that inspires his handcrafted glassware, too, pushing him to play with form and artistic conventions as he envisions a new piece. But once he begins the crafting process, he seeks what he calls a strict symbiosis with what he's making: "When I start to create a new piece, I completely isolate myself from everything that surrounds me," he says. But "the thrill in seeing a new piece take shape" is always worth it.
Massimo blows Borosilicate glass which is the same as Pyrex, making his products strong and durable. His pieces are certainly both practical and also a huge talking point. The decanters are all limited editions and are signed and numbered on the bottom. All Massimo's decanters can hold one bottle of wine.
Each product is individual and can vary in colour.
