Playfully named Puffo, this vase has a round ‘pouf-like’ shape. To achieve the desired form and dimensions, the molten glass is first mouthblown and, once cooled, the surface is transformed by a laborious cold carving process called ‘molatura’, which lends to the vase a special luminous and tactile quality. This vase is handcrafted and signed.
Colour: Pale Gold, Size: H 17cm, Ø 23cm
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.
