Up for sale: This piece is a stunning imported original hand-blown glow-in-the-dark glass vase sculpture by Jean Claude Novaro (1943-2014), hand signed by the artist! Includes Certificate of Authenticity! Measures approx. 4.5" (diameter) x 6.5" (height); 4.5 lbs. (weight). The brightness of the glowing is amazing! For nearly 50 years, Jean Claude Novaro has perfected the art of creating glass sculpture with a singularity of purpose some might say borders on obsession. Novaro has become world-renowned not only for technical mastery and innovation, but also for his solitary technique, a rarity even among the most accomplished glass maestros. Each action of creation is pre-planned and intentional, designed to achieve a specific result. Claude Monet once said, "No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and sure of his method and composition." Given this definition, Jean-Claude Novaro is a fine artist of the highest order. Born in 1943 in Antibes, France, Novaro apprenticed at the age of 14 under Eloi Monod in Biot. He became a Master of Glass at only 20 years old, and opened his own glass factory just ten years later. Since that time, Novaro has developed a style known not for its delicacy, but for its weight, depth and complex layering of color with clear glass, a particularly difficult effect to achieve. Novaro has not only mastered the incorporation of gold leaf into his glass, he is the first in 3,500 years of glass-making history to add luminescent elements, a spectacular invention which he has patented. 1404078
