THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Seguso Family
The artistry of the Seguso Family has been featured in Depth magazine.
Present since 1300 in the census books of Murano, Italy, today the prestigious Seguso glass-crafting family has a Brazilian branch. In 1954, Mario Seguso was invited to execute special commemorative pieces for the 400th anniversary of the city of São Paulo. Enchanted by Brazil, he decided to settle there and, in this way, to continue the family line in this country.
His intention was to produce serious, artistic work of the highest level, and become known throughout Brazil and in other countries. After years of supervising the production of artisan crystal, he assured its continuity through his sons Michel and Adriano, who carry on the Seguso Family tradition.
Since then, the Seguso Family has been recognized for the creativity and originality of their work and always are cited in news articles, award ceremonies and retrospective exhibits, with an increasing number of admirers and collectors interested in the passionate art of glass."
