The Oball Italian glass furnace was founded in the 1970s by Luigi Onesto. Luigi had a passion for creating timeless masterpieces through the sommerso glassmaking technique. He dedicated his life mastering the art of sommerso and inspired his sons, Fabio and Michele, to join him as teenagers in his atelier. Fabio and Michele were always fascinated by the marine life and wanted to capture its beauty in timeless sommerso glasswork. Next to honoring the heritage of their father and continuing the production of sommerso vases and bowls, they started creating wonderful sea life animal sculptures. Joined by Michele’s son Christian, the brothers developed a special technique allowing a three dimensional visualization of sea life. These unique sea life aquarium sculptures are created through separately blowing first the different see life elements, then placing them in separate molten glass layers. The wisdom of the old and passion of the young generations meet in these truly unique glass sea life sculptures. The artworks are signed, labelled and shipped directly from the atelier of Oball.
