Murrine Opache by Carlo Scarpa for Venini 1993

  • Black and blue plate designed by Carlo Scarpa made with the "MURRINE" techinque. This technique is one of the oldest decorative techniques, well known in ancient Rome and revived in Venice in the 1880's.It is achieved by joining glass canes of various colors in the disired pattern. The canes are then heated until they form a single bar, which is then sectioned to obtain small glass discs. The discs are laid out in a given pattern and reheated in order to be shaped into the finished object.
  • The pieces are then grounded (battuto); this technique is characterized by a wheel-ground surface to produce countless small irregular marks adjacent and parallel.
  • 38 x 30 cm
  • Signed by scarpa and marked 20/29.
  • Mint
