rugiada

Rugiada

RugiadaThis is a type of glass invented by Ercole Barovier in 1940 consisting of an application of colourless glass grit onto the surface of an object during its production. When the object is then heated, the particles are partially melted and adhere perfectly.

To enhance the material, some pieces of gold leaf are on occasion encased between the surface and the grit, with the object being subsequently iridized.
This technique was used for a series of bowls and vases with a marine inspiration and even in field of lighting, due to the pleasant light diffraction effects on the uneven surface.
