Hand-blown glass vases and bowls in vibrant colors and massive dimensions are recent additions to the Saper Galleries inventory of over 1,500 original works of art.

The unique creations are the designs of Romanian artist Ioan Nemtoi, who gallery owner Roy Saper discovered in 2002.

“I was taken by their brilliant colors, large dimensions, and sheer beauty and knew they would be unique to what has been shown in this area,” observed Saper.

Nemtoi’s designs are contemporary and compelling.  It is the brilliance of color and design that are most captivating in viewing the decorative glass creations.  Their large size, some up to two-feet tall, make them even more notable as strong visual attractions.

Nemtoi’s spectacular designs and rich colors are unique in the world of art glass.  From large oval shapes to his popular wavy bowls, each is unique and a signature of Nemotoi’s creativity.

The artist was born in Northeastern Romania in 1964 and opened his glass studio in 1995.  Much of his inspiration comes from nature.  “The technique I use is almost like a kind of watercolor technique which gives the glass both life and depth and makes it bubble with color. I like to add color to shape, “ explains the artist.

Although Saper has displayed hundreds of hand-blown glass paperweights and vases, the addition of the Ioan Nemtoi massive glass vessels brings a new level of quality and excitement to the medium. 

As a centerpiece on a dining or coffee table, a focal point for the entrance to a home or commercial building, or a colorful attraction for any room, the Nemtoi glass bowls and vases are high-quality, colorful, unique creations that will add brilliance and light to any setting.

Saper Galleries will continue to acquire and display the Nemtoi glass as part of its inventory for collectors now and in the future.
