The name Rullo evokes the act of rolling the heated glass on the blow pipe. This small vase is firstly shaped by blowing the molten glass, and then, once cooled, its further modelled by carving the surface. The final polishing enhances the vibrations of the light on the etched surface.
This vase is handcrafted and signed.
Colour: Amethyst, Size: H 15cm, Ø 13cm
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.
