Baldwin / Guggisberg, Beyond Glass Exhibition - Ariana Museum, Geneva
13 October 2011 - 25 March 2012

The internationally-renowned master glassmakers, Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg have the techniques of glass to develop a fascinating aesthetic of forms and colors sublimated by a mastered articulation of light. The Musee Ariana is devoting a major exhibition to this artistic duo that explires their recent as well as earlier work in order to acknowledge a highly personal poetic universe combining two visions of an inner world.

20th Century Venetian Glass - a private Genevan collection
13 October 2011 - 8 April 2012

This Genevan collection brings together an ensemble of vases, bowls and dishes from the 1920s to the 1990s that illustrated the diversity and the quality of the Venetian glassmaking industry in the 20th century. The majority of the models presented were produces in their hundreds by the Murano glassblowers for companies such as Venini, Cappelin, Barovier, Martinuzzi, Seguso and Barbini. This multiplicity should not disguise the fact that all these pieces are unique.

And a gift from the Friends of the Musée Ariana:
an 18th century Nymphenburg porcelain rocaille pot-pouri vase
