Fulvio Bianconi - (1915-1996) was a college trained illustrator and caricaturist. After WW2 he came to Murano to study glass techniques and met Paolo Venini. Venini spotted the incredible talent and hired him in 1947. Bianconi became the most successful designer of the Golden Age of Italian glass: post WW2 to 1969. Bianconi brought a sensuality and colorful excitement to glass. All of his shapes are derived from the female form in some way. He created the pezzati (patches) series, which became Venini's most popular design. Other designs include sasso, fasce orrizontali, sirena, and the extremely rare bikini vase. His numerous pieces are highly collectible and well documented.
