venini, the venetian master of murano crystal, has just released a new collection of decorative vases with versace. the versace venini vasi collaboration was first launched in 1997 and this year’s vvv collection pays homage to postmodernism. since their release, the historic pieces have been greatly in demand by home decorators who value italian hand crafted workmanship, attention to detail and a passion for striking chromatic colors.
tessere glassware is made in different phases: first a number of thin strips of colored glass are allowed to cool, then they are cut into small irregular squares which are combined in a patchwork pattern and melted together to create the finished vessel.
murrina glass is made by combining rods of glass of various colors in a certain pattern. the rods are then melted together to form a single cane. this cane is then sliced to obtain a number of small discs which are arranged in the desired pattern and melted together. the piece is then worked or blown until the desired shape is obtained.
these items sometimes are stocked in italy, please call.
