MOSAICO

2023

The Millefiori technique is certainly one of the most emblematic processes associated with the island of Murano. Glass rods of different shades are fused together under heat and then stretched to produce “murrine”, with infinite patterns and colour combinations. Inspired by this creative process reminiscent of a mosaic, this project aims to reinterpret the Millefiori aesthetic by creating patterns composed of glass rods of different sizes, colours and transparencies. These three pieces, held together by simple straps, represent both the raw, artisanal aspect of the production of basic glass elements, but also all the refinement and sophistication of the unique creations made by Venetian Master glassmakers.
