Murano Glass Large Art Centerpiece Bowl, lilac, blue, Made in Italy
Handblown by a Master Glass Artisan on the island of Murano, Italy. This one-of-a-kind centerpiece bowl is created using age-old techniques passed down by their forefathers.
This centerpiece bowl features the ancient reticello glassmaking technique.
The filigree technique has some variations. One of the most famous ones is the “reticello”. In Italian, this translates to “a small net”, and this is what you will see when viewing this technique.Two glass cores are wrapped inside the glass canes, then one rod is turned clockwise and the other counterclockwise. These movements cause little air bubbles to get trapped inside the crisscross pattern, giving it a mesmerizing appearance.
In this particular piece, you can see the tiny air bubbles trapped exactly in the center of each criss-cross design in the pink/lilac section.
Measures approximately: 4.5" tall x 8.5" wide (at opening) x 3" wide (at bottom)
