Animals constituted one of young
Oscar’s first contacts with glass, when he began his experience in
‘lampwork’, working with a torch at a workbench. But his real
education came with the designs of his father Licio, and later with
his own creations/creatures, making the pieces in ‘solid’ glass
which the Vetreria Zanetti is now specialized in.
Figures whose colours and forms extend nature’s own variety and open the doors
to a magic dimension, where sharks emerge from waves of clear glass enclosing myriads of bubbles, winged horses that exit mythology to come forward in glass, ducks in flight that blend their transparency with the transparency of the sky and triumphant goldfish on curled blue waves. Admiring the display of works, it looks like their creator has tried
everything, not just in terms of design but even in the composition of
the glass types and in their combinations.
