SOMMERSI Sommerso is a decorative technique whereby the piece, which can be blown or solid, is cased in one or more layers of different colours to obtain a bright and attractive effect. Sommerso glass is made by dipping the piece (while still attached to the pontil) into crucibles containing molten glasses of different colours. To enhance the decorative effect inclusions of gold leaf or air bubbles are sometimes incorporated between the different layers.
