Set of seven vintage Venetian gold dusted shallow glass bowls. By the 16th century, Venetian artisans had gained great control over the color and transparency of their glass, plus had mastered a variety of decorative techniques. These plates are a delicate example of the fine objects they produce.
In 2004, Carol Fertig developed her brand, FERTIG, by creating a design vocabulary that reinvents the splendid historic practice of European graphic embellishment, then merges it with technology. Ms. Fertig also owns/curates Object-Lesson and The Supplemental--but first and foremost she’s a sucker for beauty and elegant solutions. Her work has been featured in Elle Decor, Departures, and InStyle and is included in the collections of The Art Institute of Chicago and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and F.I.T. in NYC.
