After great two days trip to Munich we are back with unique sculptures by Italian modernist glass maker Toni Zuccheri.

Working mainly with Venini, Zuccheri has created many great glass designs including series of his flamboyant birds sculptures combining Venini glass with the brass and other materials. Both objects above, made at the end of the 1950s, highlight with their dynamic expressionist forms to create almost abstract compositions.

Rare "Hoopoe" prototype of bird from 1959 was auctioned during the Moss: Dialogues between art & design auction at Phillips de Pury & Company last month. Sold at $37,500.
