Description

“Brina” means frost and is a collection of vases which have been mouth blown and shaped free-hand by skilled glass masters on the island of Murano.

The refined and ancient glass making technique used to join the pale pink lower part with the upper part of the vase is called “incalmo”. “Incalmo” is a glass manufacturing technique that allows the creation of an object made up of distinct parts which are joined together while the glass is hot. This technique, in use since the Middle Ages, requires great precision because the parts to be joined must have the same diameter and compatibility of colors and temperature.

The delicate and thin white pattern in the upper part of the vase is realized using a “filigrana” technique. “Filigrana” is a sophisticated and complex decorative technique invented in Murano in the first half of the 16th century; it requires not only a remarkable skill on the part of the master glassmaker, but also a long process of realization. In fact, before the creation of the vase, thin glass rods containing “lattimo” white glass threads must be made by hand. The rods are then arranged on a metal plate, heated to the melting point, and a cylindrical item is then made to roll over them so that they adhere to it. The item can then finally be shaped.

Each piece is handcrafted and signed. Sizes and shapes vary slightly and subtle markings and/or small air bubbles may be seen in the glass.
