Flavio Poli (1900 - 1980)
The Italian glass artist is renowned for his contribution to the development of glass in Murano, giving rise to a new style in the 1950s, known as Sommerso, or submerged glass. Poli was born in Chioggia in 1900 and trained as a ceramist at the Istituto d'Arte in Venice. In 1929, Poli began working as a glassmaker at the IVAM (Industrie Vetraie Artistiche Murano) glass factory, where he created large-scale sculptures, animals, Novocento-style figurative nudes, glass bowls and urns. In 1934 Poli began working as a glassmaker for the company Barovier, Seguso, & Ferro (later known as Seguso Vetri d´Arte) in Murano. In three years, he became a partner and was appointed Artistic Director of the company.
In the 1950s, at the height of his career, he developed a style of “submerged” glass, a technique of superimposing different layers of glass of varying consistencies and colors. His series of Sommerso blown glass pieces received the Compasso d'Oro Prize in 1954.
