Stilla, which means “drop”, are light and colour; the unique transparency effect of a drop of dense colour piercing the clear glass, gives a truly amazing feeling. This modern Murano glass “sommerso” vase features amber glass immersed in clear crystal. Stilla is a tangible witness to the power of Murano glass, of the strength of this material. It is available in aqua, amber, smoke and ruby: splendid taken as a single piece, truly breathtaking when placed side by side in a rainbow of colours and hues typical of “sommerso” glass.

BLOWING

 

Glass-blowing, which most likely originated in Syria between the first century BC and the first century AD, is a glass manufacturing technique that revolutionized glass production times by significantly speeding them up. This may be defined as the "classic" technique for creation of hollow objects.

Glass can be mouth-blown or mould-blown. In the first instance the master, aided by his assistants, shapes the object by blowing through a long hollow metal tube, the so-called "blow-pipe".

The glass is picked up from the center of the oven, blown and shaped by use of a "borsella", a pair of flexible tongs that can accomplish different tasks depending on their shape. Indeed, the borsella can be used to pinch the object, narrow it, remove imperfections, open it up or give it a precise shape.

During this work, the pipe is countinuously spun to avoid warping the glass, as it is still soft at this stage and can be warped by gravity.

 

Mould-blowing, on the other hand, involves blowing the glass into a mould which, in Murano, is built out of pear wood. It can be made out of two or three hinged pieces, used to shape the object, or by a single truncated conical piece, sometimes made of bronze or brass, used to imprint a decorative pattern onto the object.


SOMMERSO


This technique (meaning "submerged") involves dipping a thick glass object back into the melting pot to coat it with an equally thick layer of glass of a different colour.

 

The overlapping colours create a peculiar chromatic effect in the solid glass.
