“Chinese” was the definition attributed to a series of incamiciati (sleeved) glass vases and bowls, with forms drawn from the Oriental porcelain much appreciated by Scarpa.


of these brightlycoloured glass items were exhibited at the 22nd Venice

Biennale, and because of their elegant features met with great success.

The use of the incamiciatura technique, in which various

differently-coloured glass layers were superimposed, enabled the

craftsmen to create thin and strikingly-coloured objects.
