VETRERIA TIOZZO SERGIO
The Company, founded by Sergio Tiozzo, has been handed over to his son Claudio.
Claudio Tiozzo started working in the family workshop from a very young age, where he learned all the secrets of the Murrina technique. According to Murano tradition, he apprenticed for a while in the biggest furnaces of the island: Barovier & Toso, Venini and Aureliano Toso.
Starting in 1989, he has been directing the family furnace. The primary objective of his company is to create fine quality objects using one of the most ancient glass-making processes: the "murrina".
This kind of manufacture requires a very delicate and meticulous process that only expert hands can perform correctly. Beside this traditional production, Claudio Tiozzo is fond of experimenting with glass in its infinite forms: the results of this additional collection are spectacular, one example among all are his chandeliers made of "cotisso" glass.
There are many types of Murano glass beads. A first distinction can be between solid and blown beads, and they can all be categorized in three types: "conterie", "rosette" and "perle a lume".
The first two are obtained by processing previously prepared patterned canes, whereas the lampwork beads, "perle a lume", are created by wrapping glass, melted by a small gas flame, around a fine iron rod, and embellished in infinite ways.
There are several subcategories within lampwork beads.
The "scièta" bead is monochromatic, and its shape can be spherical, ovoid, cubic, cylindric.
There is the so-called mosaic bead, also called "millefiori", obtained by covering the hot glass core with numerous tiny sections of murrine, pressing them together with special tools.
Another type is the "submerged" bead, produced by coating the plain glass core with coloured glass grit, then covering it all with clear glass. If, instead of coloured glass, gold or silver leaf is used, the result will be a gold or silver "sommerso".
There are also "flowered" beads, in which a thin strip of aventurine is wrapped around the incandescent core, and subsequently decorated with raised embellishments. "Vette" beads are made in the same way, except fine twisted strands of coloured glass are wrapped around the core, instead of strips; the filaments are called "vette".
