Daniela Forti Light­ness of Be­ing | ART

Upscale Living Magazine - - Content - | By Heléne Ra­mack­ers

Her translu­cent sculp­tures em­u­late the trans­par­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics of jel­ly­fish and the mul­ti­fac­eted tal­ents of Daniela Forti know no bounds. Born in Rome, her stud­ies in ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign formed a bench­mark for her trans­fer­ence to the fine art of glass de­sign.

Her de­vel­op­ment of a par­tic­u­lar ex­pres­sive mas­tery of the in­tri­ca­cies of glass cre­ated a brilliant man­i­fes­ta­tion of the di­ver­gent process that links flu­id­ity and heat to col­ors as to glass in its nat­u­ral state.

She col­lab­o­rated with glass­mak­ers af­ter she moved to Tus­cany in 1982 where she re­searched the di­chotomy be­tween light and glass. Each of her brilliant pieces is man­u­fac­tured by hand, us­ing a tech­nique known as “vetro­fu­sione”; by melt­ing glass, the cre­ations are un­usual, ex­ot­i­cally orig­i­nal worlds where this ma­te­rial ac­quires vivid col­ors and pli­able shapes, and light gains a new, ab­stract essence.

Through her in­ge­nious de­signs and knowl­edge of her art, she gives new life to marine crea­tures by us­ing sen­sual shapes and in­cred­i­ble col­ors. Jel­ly­fish have never looked this sexy! http://www. danielafor­ti.it/english/works.htm
