Leslie Ann Genninger. Murano Water

Event organised by Leslie Ann Genninger

Acqua di Murano...a morphology of Murano past and present reflects into the future. Fundamental to Murano’s survival are actions...acts of creation, repetition, collaboration, mastering, listening, watching, and collecting...each essential to the other like water to an Island. Objects recovered from the past created by unknown Masters whose purpose is now defunct, are merged, morph and metabolise into a new life, a new alchemy, an elixir for Murano...a drop of water….survival.

Leslie Ann Genninger (USA, 1959) is an American designer and adopted Venetian who has been designing and creating with Murano Glass for over 35 years. Her sculptures juxtapose vintage and contemporary Murano Glass elements into unfamiliar compositions creating a dialogue between the past, present and future. “Acqua di Murano” embodies the essence of life’s survival.
