Power and might of the sun, captured in this Murano glass vase: filtered by a colourful web, its burning red rays shine through. Completely handcrafted, this Murano glass vase is the synthesis of the master glassmaker's creative energy: tradition and innovation cross paths like a mirror reflecting the history of ever-changing Murano glass. This vase is unique, unrepeatable, a small luxury with which to adorn your home.
The Polychromy glassworking company was born on the island of Murano in the spring of 2001, strong from the experience of a team of three heavyweights of the glass-blowing world. Today, the furnace is guided by Gianluca Vidal, world-renowned artist and master glassmaker.
The Polychromy artistic glassworks is specialized in the production of high-level Murano glass artistry, exclusively handmade, and distinctive by its lines and shapes: the collection includes vases, decorative objects, and functional art.
Thanks to the manufacturing process undergone by each product, every piece is unique and unrepeatable.
To create these vases, two different types of manufacturing must be combined: glass-blowing and fusion. First, a pattern of glass canes is arranged on a metal plate, which is coated with lagoon-marsh mud -- this is the only substance able to isolate melting glass from metal. The glass is then melted in dedicated ovens before being picked up with the blow-pipe.
The initial composition is what determines shape and size of the vase, whether it is composed of canes, geometric slabs, filigree or aventurine, and produces a unique object every time. Once the melted pattern is picked up on the blow-pipe and wrapped around an incandescent blob of glass, it is blown and shaped with tongs to give it a final shape.
The vase then undergoes "battitura" (which means "striking"), a finishing process named after the stricken wrought iron look. Actually, what the craftsman does is really grinding the surface into small hollows placed very close together, to create a "fish-scale" pattern. This technique is typically Muranese, and dates back to the 1930's.
