Materiali: vetro di muranoARTE DA INDOSSARE ESPERIENZE DI RICERCA
Caterina Zucchi is a researcher of shapes: she found in glass and in the blowpipe technique the ideal tools to pursue this personal quest.
Her interest in glass starts in 2000 and continues through courses of study at the Vetroricerca Glas&Modern institutes in Bolzano and the Abate Zanetti school of glass in Murano, where she spent a year as assistant to a master glassmaker until 2004, when she opened her studio in Livorno.
Studiozero-vetro is the workshop where she designs and creates entirely hand-blown Murano glass and non-blown Murano glass jewelry. Among the many techniques for working with glass, she chooses the blowpipe technique because it focuses on immediate actions, where the precision and skill of the gestures make the glass even more versatile. It is a technique that allows room for improvisation and space to fully express creativity. Creativity is an urgency, a spontaneous gesture, a moment, a state of mind.
She does not seek the perfect glass bead, but an object in harmony with its surroundings, coherent and close to the creative impulse.
Since 2019 she has been collaborating with Murano Master Lucio Bubacco, a master of figurative art, on the project of wearable works from the Baroque-Contemporary style.
Caterina's artistic journey is an attempt to grant Murano glass jewelry a new contemporaneity that has always been strongly linked to the millennial history of decorations and forms.
