Lucia Massari

The Clown



Lucia Massari’s playful wall mirrors are crafted by master Venetian glass craftspeople of Barbini Specchi Veneziani. Intended to emulate a mask, each mirror becomes a character that comes to life through the intricate applied decoration of glass rosettes, leaves and swirls. The seriousness of a mirror is then underplayed by a desire for brief moments of brevity and play, catching yourself in the reflection of either a clown, a burly biker or a beauty queen.
