Fazzoletto Opalino glass vase by Venini
Designed by Fulvio Bianconi in 1948 and later revisited by other celebrated artists, the Fazzoletto collection evokes the charming yet irreverent swaying of skirt fabrics.
An exclusive new take on the Opalini technique from the 15th century makes its colour unique. The creative genius of Fulvio Bianconi makes its shape inimitable, recalling skirts swaying in the breeze. Every Fazzoletto Opalini is truly unique: there's not another one like it anywhere.
SOFFIATO OPALINO - Obtained by overlapping milk-white and other types of glass, the opalino glass is hand-blown and hand-crafted. This technique takes its name from the action performed by the craftsmen when they blow air into a long metal cane attached to a piece of glass in order to expand and shape it into various shapes. This glassmaking tradition has remained unchanged for more than a thousand years. Thanks to this ancient technique and to the experience and manual skill of the master glassmakers, a simple piece of glass is transformed into artistic masterpieces that are truly one of a kind.
MANO VOLANTE (FREE-HAND) - The term free-hand (in Italian, “mano volante”, literally ‘flying hand’) indicates the swift and expert movement of the master glassmaker’s hand as he hot works a precious piece of glass.
