Maestro Tagliapietra's interpreation of an orchid flower in Murano glass, made using the Massello and Calcedonio techniques.
Its elegant sylized shapes are supported by a sphere and a crystal cylindrical base.
The 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.
Hand-made in Murano by Andrea Tagliapietra, following the ancient Murano glass techniques.
