This tall, large glass is hand-blown with the traditional techniques of Murano and then laboriously engraved to produce a snakeskin effect on the surface Serpentin. This gentle but distinctive carving transforms both the visual perception and the tactile experience of the glass.

Each glass is unique, handcrafted and signed. For more colours and sizes or larger sets contact us via email.

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.
