Sommersi Foglia Oro
Laura Diaz de Santillana. "Sommersi" blown handmade glasses with "sommerse" gold leaf inclusions.
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.

Since over ninety years the Venini brand stands out for its craftsmanship and tradition in the international glass objects market. The first artistic director Vittorio Zecchin has immediately laid the foundations for the stylistic identity that still today distinguishes the company. Since its origins, the company Venini has always been at the forefront, trying to reinterpret the traditional patterns in a modern key, thanks to the skill in the processing of glass according to the ancient knowledge of the master glassmakers of Murano. History and tradition come together with innovative projects and design: this brings the company Venini to be present at the most important design appointments in the world, where annually presents new collections and limited editions designed by great designers.
