BATTUTI INCISI - These names given to some of the collections producedby Venini derive from the most renowned and difficult coldworking techniques of the master Venetian glassmakers: techniques whose unsurpassable excellence of quality and style the collections seek to reflect. In each case the end product is a combination of expert kiln work and exceptionally delicate cold work by Venini’s master glass workers. Venini began making glass using these techniques around 1930. In battuto glass, shallow irregular cavities are milled “molato” on the surface of the glass to obtain a beaten “battuto” effect. Inciso is performed using a hard milling tool on the cold surface of the piece.
