The Green Planet is a distant and unknown planet to terrestrials, where the people who inhabit it live their existence in harmony with themselves and with nature. Encased in a bell jar crafted of clear blown glass, green filaments in Murano glass seemingly defy gravity to create this miniature green planet, the ground made of molten glass enriched with fluorescent pigments. A utopian scenario recalling “Invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino.
The sculpture rests on a footed, swivel wooden support that is coated with a micro-cement, textured resin flaunting a silvery finish.
