Centerpiece in Murano glass
The Burcio is a large vessel typically used in Venice. This is a flat-bottomed boat from the bottom able to navigate easily in the shallows of the lagoon. The shape of this centerpiece reminds this boat that still characterizes the lagoon traffic.
BURCIO is a centerpiece made with small hand-cut mosaics in opaque and transparent Murano glass fused together. The procedure to create this centerpiece is very complex and laborious. The first step is to compose the sequence of colors, while the second one is to create the shape. This is realized using opaque and transparent Murano glass in a combination of colors, blended with gold leaves. Like the mosaic technique multicolored glass rods are meticulously cut and joined together. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand. It takes about 4 working days to create this item.
