Fish 19 – Murano Glass
Only for DolceVita club members
Fish 19 is an extremely delicate goblet from the colors to the sweetness of the shapes.
It was born as an exhibition goblet, in which Aldo Boscolo decided to use the root of glass, that is transparency, and to use a technique that allows the movement of bubbles inside the glass that give the fish decoration a marine effect, without using colors or chromatic patterns.
The challenge of this glass lies in making an artistic effect using only the base of the glass material, bare, without colors or shades.
Being able to use the material in order to demonstrate the technique of lampworking.
The beverage is created as usual, by tradition suffusing the glass. The stem is worked with different graduations of fire and with gentle, round movements.
Born from the customs and traditions of the place.
From the continuous search for human companionship.
It recalls the great evenings in the furnaces of Murano that became suggestive meeting places for luxury or traditional parties.
Master Aldo Boscolo’s shots want to accompany those important evenings, and those refined liquors to a shot that has its own grit.
Sweeping away the banal digestive glasses in order to give a multi-sensorial experience to those who are going to have a digestive.
The line has endless color variations as one of the main traditions was to differentiate the glass in order not to confuse it as the evening goes on.
The technique used is always that of the glass “at the first shot”, that is to say, the use only of the technique and of natural forces such as centrifugal force and blowing, no support tools other than a paddle to marbling the glass.
In the line shot sequence is found from the traditional design, with the typical “macce” in Italian stains, up to an innovative and unique design, in which it is blown together with the glass a leaf of silver ‘925 and finally brought to its oxidation, thus creating an effect cracle.
The measures of the shots vary depending on the strength with which it is made to spin the glass during the opening.
In average the measures are as diameter 3,5 cm
Height 4 / 5 cm
|Dimensions||10 × 10 × 10 cm|
