Centerpiece in Murano glass
This boat is one of the most famous and widespread in Venice. It is a flat-bottomed boat, long max. 10 m, perfect for the shallow waters of the Venetian lagoon. A time used for fishing, now for the transport of persons, for modest loads, sometimes for regattas. Inspired by this well-known Venetian boat, we create this centerpiece in Murano glass obtained by fusing of precious black and white filigree rods with glass inserts in ivory and Venetian red on black base.
The procedure to create this glass 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 with the glass fusing technique using opaque Murano glass and filigree. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand.
