Maestro Tagliapietra celebrates the creatures of the sea with a stunning Murano glass sculpture of two manta rays made using the Massello and Calcedonio techniques.
Maestro Tagliapietra has taken inspiration from the creatures of the ocean to create a stunning reproduction of this beautiful animal. It takes a lot of skills, strength, and expertise to create such a flawless artwork.
Its peculiar colors are due to the calcedonio technique. The coloring effect is obtained by adding to the molten glass a mixture based on different metal oxides. The results are incredible.
