Figurative human sculpture entirely made of glass. Only glass, glossy and transparent, can be molded into a glittering network of interwoven threads that acquire substance from the color but above all from the reflections of light. They arouse ambivalent feelings: can one be disturbed by a worrying situation of physical or mental coercion in which humans struggle in vain against an unknown force or smile at this playful spectacle?
Mauro Bonaventura was born in Venice in 1965 In 1983, after graduating in Electronics and waiting for his first job, by pure chance, he went to work in a Venetian furnace as a apprentice and from the very first days he fell in love with the incandescent masses of glass previously unknown to him.
In 1992 he met a craftsman who invited him to visit his lampworking workshop.
