    The uniqueness of VENINI’s production is given by handcraft procedures followed during all working processes.
    Some shades or bubbles, that might be found on the glass, underline that every single piece is entirely handmade and
    even if similar to the others, each single piece is unique.
    Where are my Glasses? by Ron Arad:
    A very frequently asked question is “where do your ideas come from?”. The answer is “ideas are
    all around me – too many of them if anything – the problem is not where to find ideas but which
    ideas you give time to. Occasionally an idea jumps the queue and is impossible to ignore.”
    I spent a lot of time recently designing glasses. I spent a lot of time recently blowing glass, so the
    idea of blowing glass into glasses sprouted from the verbal pun into reality.
    An idea that jumped the queue!
    The process started – sketches, modelling, rendering, making iron frames and the incredible
    Venini masters blowing molten glass into glasses.
    Not only an amazing exciting time by the furnaces, but also my favourite results – getting
    something better than one deserves.
    So, where are my glasses? Well, it’s transparent!

Balloton

Blown handmade Murano glass, realized with the traditional tecnique called “Balloton”, with a glass thread, applied when hot, on the upper part of the object.
This technique is employed to obtain a particular optical illusion. The glass mass is blown inside a metal mold which has little pyramid points inside. These points give to the object an interesting crossed effect.
