Technique

Beaten

In the late 30’s the glass masters started to realize some new techniques, for which the decorative element is fundamental. Beaten and cut glass is characterized by an engraved surface with small irregular parallel scratches.

Incalmo

This technique is particularly difficult and it is realized by joining two different glass pieces when still hot by their circumference. In this way it is possible to obtain a single object in two different colors.
