Introduction
Flavio Poli (1900-1984) was an Italian artist, known for his designs in glass. Born in 1900, he was trained at the Istituto d'Arte di Venezia, then began work as a ceramicist. In 1929, he began working for the company "I.V.A.M." (Industrie Vetraie Artistiche Murano) as a designer of glassware. He was appointed artistic director of Barovier, Seguso & Ferro (later Seguso Vetri d’Arte) in 1934, where he devised a style of 'submerged' glass, with several transparent layers, one over the other. Within three years, he was a partner in the company. Poli received one of the inaugural Compasso d'Oro awards in 1954 for the Seguso “Mod. 9822” blue-ruby glass vase. He left Seguso in 1963. From 1964 to 1966 he led the artistic glass division of the Società Veneziana di Conterie e Cristallerie. Poli died in 1984. A number of his works are in the Murano Glass Museum, as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia; and the Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York.
