From the depths of the Fornace (Kiln) emerge rare glass jewels, skilfully designed to maximize the sparkle, beyond imagination.
In the expert hands of the blowers, glass turns into precious gemstones of various colours – Green, Grass Green, Purple, Red, Aquamarine, Sapphire, Tea and Grey. Unique and sparkling. Crafted and etched using different techniques, from Balloton to Rigadin.
SOFFIATO (BLOWN) - 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.
RIGADIN - This decoration is obtained by blowing the glass ball into a mould, which is generally in bronze and features triangular grooves. The glass inside the mould acquires a ribbed surface and, if it is subsequently twisted, it becomes Rigadin ritorto (Twisted Rigadin).
