Ave V - Unique Handmade Glass Art Figure
Ave V is a memorable piece by El Salvador’s celebrated artist Fernando Llort. Simple lines and elements provide the expression of peace and harmony that Llort believed in. Never needing more than the basic building blocks of Salvadoran folklore to elicit his characteristic style, this small piece could be considered a distillation of Llort’s most distinguishing artistic themes.
Sculptor, painter, muralist and composer, the multifaceted Fernando Llort’s notable style originates from Salvadoran life, featuring his home country’s ethnic and religious cultural elements. The artist left behind an unmistakable legacy, inspired by Mayan art and the colors of his native El Salvador, where his art lives on.
Fernando Llort’s iconic style is brought to life by Margarita Llort’s team of glass artisans. Made by hand and following eco-friendly practices, this piece was created through glass fusing techniques and belongs to the celebrated “Artesanos de luz” collection (Artisans of Light), an unprecedented joint initiative by cousins Fernando and Margarita Llort.
