This series has its origin in Florence, from the architecture and the interior of the first exhibition of Markku Piri in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, among others from the Michelangelesque staircase in the Palazzo. Here, the artist wanted to create respectfully, but also with a little smile, objects which are timelessly archaic in their forms, and lush in their decor. The ancient glass tradition and the artistic ideas of the present times greet each other in a grand manner.

A Glass of Exalted Envy is a show-stopper. The glow of the green base colour, and the glossy almost metallic black patterns of the surface, were a source of joy for the Artist in the planning process. The result, as executed by the Lasismi Group in Finland, is incredible. If you place A Glass of Exalted Envy by a window, or light it slightly from the behind, the glow of colours is spellbinding.
