Murano glass chalice made with the technique of lampworking according to the tradition of the island, will be performed only by centrifugal force and manual dexterity of the artist without tools for support. The ‘intent in this’ work was to describe the wonder at the material level. Explaining in short Wonder stands at the ‘beginning of the search for the meaning of life. The ability to marvel at what surrounds us makes us sensitive to the beauty and mystery, free from the heaviness of matter and the illusory limits of the obvious. Aristotle recognized the emotional and mental state that stimulates the speculative thinking, while Einstein immortalized it in one of his most famous statements: “those who can no longer wonder and marvel is as if they were dead and their eyes are unable to see:” The color of this word is purple, the ray with the highest energy properties of the solar spectrum, at the extreme limit of visible colors, close to ultraviolet radiation. It represents the door to the Afterlife, the extreme intellectual adventure, the realm of dreams, intuition and poetry. It is the color of mysticism, of the highest spirituality, of the overcoming of the dual perception in the union of opposites: red (matter) and blue (spirit). Niccol? Cusano recognized in it the coincidentia oppositorum. What the artist wanted to express while creating this chalice through the manipulation of the incandescent glass and the blowing followed by a centrifugal movement made only with the movement of his own fingers is just the thin line that represents this color. The dualism of art. Color: For the ivory decoration, For the amethyst base
