Multicolor glass toucan - This glasswork is executed with the "a lume" and incamiciato techniqes . It means that a single master makes the piece using a light to fuse and to model sticks of colored glass. The artist who's created this article is one of the most requested in this period: many younger masters tried to imitate Cristiano Balbi, but nobody had the same results in terms of quality and visual impact.
This product has been handcrafted by Cristiano Balbi in his atelier in Venice, using the traditional Murano glass techniques. Small variations in details, colours and dimensions are to be considered as evidence of this craftmanship.
