We invite you
to enjoy an unique immersive experience, that transcends traditional artistic boundaries:
For the first time, exclusively at the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show 2024, the art installation created in Murano glass.
Funny Birds’ Secret Garden is an enchanted secret garden of the Venice lagoon. An aviary where the birds that live and migrate take on magical and precious forms that only Murano glass, unique in the world, can create and reflect. An installation that creates a space for inspiration and exploration, transporting visitors through art to rediscover the beauty of nature and creating conditions for our imagination to soar.
THE ART OF MAKING
THE FUNNY BIRDS
RESEARCH AND DRAWING
The Funny Bird’s Secret Garden is an inspiration that stems from Anna Paola’s life and her close connection to Venice and the natural world of the Lagoon that surrounds one of the most beautiful cities and its islands in the world.
THE MURANO GLASS
Each and every one born from a sketch on paper, and completed in shape and form beside her straight from the furnace.Working with the maestro ( the master craftsman) they shape and form the melting glass which heats up to at 1200 degrees to then be hand finished in just moments to Anna Paola’s sketches.
The world of these poetic “Funny Birds” is their bespoke habitat designed and created by Anna Paola for the Palm Beach Show, and one conceived for them to sit on their “branches” in an open aviary-style installation, immersing them with the sound of young spring birdsong. Anna Paola completed project counts 46 Funny Birds which as a collective number represent creativity, discovery, inner strength and resilience.
