Picasso Head Sculptures: Among the Shapes of Tradition and Cubism


Murano Glass is used since ancient times for everyday life use. When Glassware sets and Mirrors became a standard among Venice’s aristocracy, Glass Masters in the Isle of Murano started experimenting with their creativity and techniques to create authentic works of art. 

Among those, sculptures that were also commissioned by the nobility abroad turned into extraordinary products that could have been displayed in the most famous art galleries. As of today, Picasso Head Sculptures in True Murano Glass are the results of Murano’s Artisans’ hard work and ability to combine traditional heritage inspired by the likes of the Cubism Movement of the 20th century’s first years.

Colors and shapes are realized through Picasso’s Style filter, resulting in innovative glass-blown items ideal for your home décor or even as a gift idea. With a little extravaganza plus a lot of tradition, these precious sculptures are able to give a touch of elegance and originality to any space. Precisely, the Badioli family is responsible for the elegance of our magnificent collection. Glass Art of Murano has garnered countless accolades from two generations of this family, both in Murano and across the world.

Every day, our Glass Masters convene in our Fornace, one of the oldest on the Isle, to give birth to such amazing designs and products.
