Variegati Zigrinati

By Admin Muranonet 1 January 2016 805 Views No comments

A small series of variegated glass objects was presented at the Venice Biennale in 1938, including two bowls created using a technique which Carlo Scarpa also employed in 1942 for some shells exhibited at that year’s Venice exhibition. 

The variegati zigrinati series featured clear, lightly iridised glass, with lace-like decorations. 
Its effect was obtained putting coloured glass threads along the object’s whole surface, which was blown into an open ribbed mould. 
The vertical ribs, thus etched into the glass surface, broke the thread’s continuity, determining its rugged design.
