Technique

Pulegoso Glass

This technique is one of the most successfulcreated by the artist Napoleone Martinuzzi.
It is a glass paste, enriched with plenty of tiny air bubbles, by adding a chemical substance that causes this kind of reaction. Sometimes also gold leaves are added.
With this technique it is possible to find very big vases, animal figures or plants. It is also found in some lighting projects as it confers a very particular effect to light.
