Description Riccio is the penultimate piece designed by Gae Aulenti for Venini, it is a sphere shape, often used by Gae Aulenti in his creations of glass pieces.
To this sphere are applied hot drops of glass of shade a little darker than the base.
Riccio simply means "Hedgehog"

Our riccio is in very good condition, published in 99 copies in 2003, the year of creation by the artist of the model.

Although unique, this vase is immediately recognizable from the work of Gae Aulenti and a similarity can be found in the lamps edited by Martinelli Luce.

Gae Aulenti's collaboration began in 1994 with the creation of two particular pieces in blown glass directly in a steel structure, "Torto" and "Ritorto", these pieces are available in green or red.

A year later, Gae Aulenti would design "Geacolor", a house bestseller which is still published today. Geacolor is a piece that looks usual but isn't… the technique used here is a transfer of hot glass onto a base in the form of a molten sphere. The vase changes according to the light or the perception of the person looking at it.
