NETTUNO - Sculpture in Murano glass
Nettuno is a decorative sculpture made with different glass rods in various shades of blue and precious Murano filigree on painted metal support.
The procedure to create this sculpture is very complex and laborious. The first step is to compose the sequence of colors, while the second one is to create the shape. Like the mosaic technique this is realized using pastel and transparent Murano glass in a combination of colors, blended with precious filigree. The glass processing technique is performed entirely by hand. As for the mosaic technique, also in this design multicolored glass rods are meticulously cut and joined together.
In Roman religion Neptune was the God of water and sea. Due to the various shades of blue color, we have dedicated this sculpture in Neptune.
