Considered by the Maestro to be “the biggest technical challenge” of his career. The Maestro began working on this idea in 1968, and explains that the technique took nearly twenty years to perfect.

The Osaka vessels have a painterly quality. The simple form allows Lino to explore pattern and texture in the murrine. The banded design recalls traditional Japanese kimono. The horizontal stripes of Lino’s vessels recall the obi that wrap around kimono and secure them in place.

Lino took inspiration for the Gondola series from the boats that fill Murano's landscape. The simplified boat forms developed from Lino’s admiration for Corto Maltese, a series of Italian comics that chronicle the adventures of a sailor.
