When you meet these two diminutive Oriental figures, you will feel the urge to tap their shoulders, just to see if they'll move! Their collected position gives them an air of elegant reflection, during rest of meditation.

Their large, pointed hats, their delicately styled clothing, the nearly hidden hands nesled within the glass sleeves, give a perfect idea of the painstaking detailed work.

The most incredible detail is the braid, created with infinite skill and dexterity, so natural that any moment, we somehow expect it to sway in the wind.

GAMBARO & TAGLIAPIETRA Srl MURANO GLASS STUDIO

 

Gambaro & Tagliapietra srl Glass Company is born as an evolution of a famous and historic Murano glass furnace, Vetreria Artistica Gambaro & Poggi Glass Company.It was founded in 1974 by Mario Gambaro and Bruno Poggi.

Their company soon became popular for their refined products and their new stiles and shapes.

Gambaro & Poggi has exalted the traditional Murano Glass techniques, and has experimented with new ones, to make its objects modern and in line with the times. Following this perspective of innovation, after the retirement of Mario, the furnace has now become Gambaro e Tagliapietra Srl Murano Glass Studio. His heirs and the young glass master Matteo Tagliapietra, are there to continue a 40 years old history, with a new innovative spirit and the same passion of everyday.

Every piece is expertly made by hand, controlled, authenticated by master Matteo Tagliapietra’s signature engraved on it, and it comes with stickers and warranty certificates which give details of its quality and origin.

Gambaro & Tagliapietra Srl is associated to Consorzio Promovetro, which comprehends leading artisan companies, specialised in this traditional handmade production, and respecting the high quality Murano Glass standards. It is also licensee of the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark (code number 022), given by the Regione del Veneto only to the glass companies of the island of Murano.

SOLID: 

 

Manufacturing of solid glass started being used on the island of Murano starting in the 1930's. This technique involves shaping a large and heavy mass of molten glass, supported by a solid metal rod, using the same tools as with blown glass. The objects take shape in the master's hands through expertly precise movemente. Solid glass working is mainly used to produce sculptures of all sizes.


GOLD OR SILVER LEAF


Precious metal leaves are extremely thin sheets of metal, usually made of pure gold or silver. In glassmaking, the imperceptibly light leaves need to be kept in a sheltered area of the furnace workshop, as even a breath might blow them away.

 

The gold or silver leaf is gently arranged on a flat surface by the master, who then rolls the incandescent blob over the leaf to pick it up; the metal leaf adheres perfectly to the surface of the glass, which is now ready to be blown. Upon blowing, the sheet of precious metal splits to spread over the entire surface of the glass object.

 

The final product therefore appears to be covered in a fine gold or silver dust.
