About the Collection
The Cá d’Oro glass collection is produced by the Seguso family. The family uses a technique from Murano, an island of Venice, Italy. This glass maker’s method has been in use since ancient times, originating in Egypt and Phoenicia, and is now carried on by the Seguso family. In consequence, all pieces are hand made and the craft work techniques utilized are the same as the antique glass makers.
About the Artists
The skilled craftsman at Cá d’Oro Glass Studio began producing artistic glass works in the city of Poços de Caldas, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1965. Founder Mario Seguso first studied his craft in Murano, Italy, an island of Venice which is recognized worldwide for its glass artisans and the creation of colorful and unique glass pieces. In the 1990s Seguso passed along the management of the unique factory to his son Adriano, who continues to use the ancient glass manufacturing process. He has now brought in this two sons, Rodrigo and Guilherme, who carry on the centuries-old style of creating the glass masterpieces.
