A fasce applicate

Consisting of a small number of bowls, vases and dishes with applied ribbon-shaped decorations, this series - designed by Carlo Scarpa for Venini - was exhibited for the first time at the 7th Milan Triennale in 1940.


The thick clear glass items are intensely iridised and owe their name to the typical ribbon-shaped decorations in clear coloured glass.
These elements were hot-applied during the manufacturing process and could be either in relief — like large colour spots — or integrated in the glass. Moreover, this series also stands out for the special hues obtained by superimposing different coloured layers.
