Oeuf en verre de Murano soufflé, bleu, décoré à la main avec émaux polychromes et feuille d'or blanc (Moongold) gravé selon l'ancien technique venettien dit: graffito. Une fois terminée, l'oeuvre est recuite dans un four à 500° pour fixer pour toujours le dessin au verre. Avec cette oeuvre, j'ai voulu reinterpreter à ma façon un des thèmes classiques du monde de l'art, le "Memento mori" (souviens-toi que tu vas mourir). L'oeuvre est signée.

Norberto Moretti was born in Venice (Italy) on December 17, 1961 and began working at the age of 18 in glassworks, learning to master the techniques of decoration. In 1992, after many years of training in workshops in Venice and Murano, he set up on his own and began to produce objects of the Venetian tradition in order to be able to finance his workshop and his artistic research. Following these creations, he chooses to present unique pieces or small series of a few pieces. He has also collaborated as a designer in different establishments such as the Salviati glassworks in Murano.

Now he lives in France, where he links contemporary forms to traditional Venetian glass decoration techniques to express his inner world tinged with poetry.

"There is no project, I make a sketch of the object that will serve as a support for my painting and I accompany the glassblower during the realization and often in real time, I suggest modifications if necessary. my workshop, I have a stock of blown glass objects waiting for my inspiration, there are some who speak to me, others who say nothing to me and I leave them waiting, I know that one of these days they will talk to me. When a piece inspires me, I start working on it I don't sketch, I have everything in my head, I just need to create landmarks to place the decoration and the drawing exactly where I want. My tools are brushes, spatulas for mixing enamels, a knife for cutting gold, silver, or platinum leaf, a pencil with a copper tip for engraving the gold leaf, and an annealing furnace to fix my work on the object at a temperature of about 515 degrees.
