Pigna is the Italian word for pine cones, and, given the shape of this glass, we thought it was the perfect name for it. The peculiar look of this vase is obtained, once again, thanks to the Molatura. Here, the engraving made once the glass is cold mimics the pine cones’ small leaves, reminding those you can find in the eastern part of the Venetian lagoon when you walk on Lido’s beach.
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.
