As the idea of ‘living green’ has become a popular trend, the world of art is no exception to this sensitivity. As people become more aware of global warming and our collective need to protect the Earth, we see more and more artists embrace the concept and work towards a more ecological and sustainable art form.
Green Art means using environmentally friendly, non toxic and natural materials. It means recycling as much as possible and incorporating these into art forms, and Alex who is a firm believer in making the world a better place has stood up and accepted the challenge to make his voice heard too.

nuova vita grazie al riciclo

A new life thanks to recycling

Alex Signoretti, whose growing fame in the artistic world of Glass, is a storyteller and here in the ‘Green Art’ collection we hear his story as the sculptures are born or rather reborn from something called waste and garbage to something new, having taken on a NEW life, thanks to recycling!
Alex very proudly says “My fascination with glass started early, and glass has surrounded me ever since and I communicate through this medium and hope my example will encourage others to recycle and see that they, too, can tell their own stories and save waste at the same time”.

When Alex Signoretti designs and moulds a piece of glass, he always has in mind how the light will pass through it, how this will change the atmosphere of the space and how this might affect the work itself as well as the observer and is very excited at hearing how spectators and collectors interpret his works.

Regarding sustainability, things have changed so much in such a short period of time. Alex, being efficient with his use of materials is a very important part of his process, leading him to work in a more natural and sustainable way.

He uses his glass offcuts for a variety of purposes like mosaic pieces, fused recycled glass. Here, in his new and very exhilarating ‘Green Art’ Collection, our eyes can feast upon sculptures that are filled with colour like a kaleidoscope and change as different kinds of light, natural or artificial illuminate them.

We see a cat which changes the colour of its fur when several hues and shades of coloured light brighten or darken it! Mind-blowing!
Other pieces are abstract and so we can decide our own interpretation and story while appreciating the great idea and effort shown by this amazing Glass Artist, who has so much to offer the world.

The responsibility of the change

Things change. We are living in times where we have to change the way we consume, the way in which we produce, and the way we connect with each other. Art and music are two dimensions which help us move forward in an optimistic way.
As a Glass artist, Alex shares part of the responsibility of that change on the production. We now have more information and knowledge regarding the impact of certain materials and uses. We have that vision of future and how it will impact in the environment, and as well as looking to the past to recover another way to produce and consume more sustainably. He remembers the past while producing in the present while his works will brighten the future.

Colourful glass canes dance together and show how something that could be thrown away can become something beautiful! These works change colour too depending on the light and sunshine so it’s like a happy playground with smiling children in movement.

colori e luci


Alex remarked that the Japanese have always used broken objects and repaired them in their technique of ‘Kintsugi’ where a broken object can be repaired and made even more beautiful.

Kintsugi teaches you that your broken places make you stronger and better than ever before. When you think you are broken, you can pick up the pieces, put them back together, and learn to embrace the cracks. Kintsugi teaches you that your broken places make you stronger and better than ever before.

Alex shows us that colourful glass canes are being used for new Green Art and not thrown away just as Kintsugi tells us we can always begin anew despite the past failures.
