vetrofusione murano glass made in italy

The vetrofusione technique has been used starting from the 30's, it was initially used to create coloured glass windows or with reliefs.
Subsequently, creations of centrepiece plates and other components were developed.
The first step is to prepare a sheet of transparent glass of the desired size, above which the decoration is composed by placing pieces of coloured glass of various colours and shapes.
The composition is then placed on a refractory stone mould and placed in the cooking oven.
The main difficulty in obtaining the desired result is to use the right times and temperatures. Furthermore, the glass to be used must be carefully chosen so that it has a homogeneous expansion coefficient.
Over time, with the development of the technology of the ovens and thanks to new experiments, there have been increasingly elaborate and surprising products.
