RIO Centerpiece in Murano glass
Rio is the name given to the small waterways of Venice. It is a stretch of lagoon that can be traveled by boats, smaller than a canal. They are bordered by buildings or streets that separate the individual islands of which the historic center is composed.
Inspired by these small canals we create this elegant oval shaped centerpiece with different shades of colored transparent glass and gold leaf.
The procedure to create this centerpiece is very complex and laborious. The first step is to compose the sequence of colors, while the second one is to create the shape. This is realized with the technique mosaic using transparent Murano glass in a combination of colors, blended with gold leaves. Multicolored square or rectangles glass pieces of very small dimensions are meticulously cut and joined together.
