This glass takes its name from its very shape, which reminds the one of a plant bulb – Bulbo in Italian. The engraving process is made once the glass is cold, and the carvings obtained accentuate the reflections projected once the light hits the glass surface, creating a shimmering effect.
This vase is handcrafted and signed.

About the techinque: Molatura
This technique takes its name from the grinding wheel used to carve the cold glass, which in Italian is called “Mola”.
Usually, the Molatura is used to get rid of the cutting edges of the glass during the finishing phase, but we have reinterpreted its original function, making it one of our most iconic decorative tools.
Since it is an extremely versatile and adaptable technique, we use it in very different ways, creating objects that, at first glance, don’t even seem were made with the same process.
The different carvings make the tactile experience one of a kind, also allowing the light to play with the glass surfaces, reflecting colours in a unique way.
