Venini news 2018

VENINI glass stands out for its rich colours, manufacturing techniques and shapes.
In particular, the new collection is based on warm and sensual tones that enhance the material’s transparency and nuances.
The techniques used to make the articles accentuate the dense and soft colour of a Grape coloured when paired with Red or Lattimo (milk-white), while the Light-Pink with Grape becomes ethereal and almost intangible in the versions.
One may define their timeless essence in the shapes and colours adopted as being their most evident characteristic. The 2018 collection is enriched with limited edition works like I TRASPARENTI DI ZECCHIN, which pays tribute to the creativity of Vittorio Zecchin, TIARA, comprising a linear design given form using a well-known VENINI glassmaking technique called balloton. For its part, GEODI is blown and subsequently worked using a highly-skilled milling technique, and TRIO, consisting of curved figures is made of blown glass and worked with the difficult incalmo technique.
The renewed colours enhance the MONOFIORI BALLOTON, FAZZOLETTI, OPALINI and CLESSIDRE collections which are here revived and dressed in new shades of colour.

The FAZZOLETTO was one of the first works designed by Fulvio Bianconi for Venini, and joined the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The technique used is particularly interesting: with his movements, the master glassmaker shapes the glass to imitate the appearance of an upside-down handkerchief.

OPALINO is a series of blown and handshaped glass vases of pure and essential lines, suitable for any type of furnishing.
First proposed in 1932, it is still made today using the opalino technique that employs Lattimo glass, a Milk-white glass created in Murano in the fifteenth century with the aim of imitating porcelain.
The process consists in superimposing one or more layers of thin, transparent or coloured glass on the Lattimo.
The result is a lacquered effect of great chromatic intensity.

MONOFIORI BALLOTON, is one of the great classics of the VENINI tradition and was presented for the first time by Venini in 1970.
The work is made using the “Balloton“ technique, which sees the use of a reticular metal mould during the blowing of the glass to confer special optical and decorative effects.
A coloured thread applied hot encompasses the decoration.

CLESSIDRE, blown and worked by hand using the complex “Incalmo” technique which consists in welding together hot glass elements, usually of different colours, to create a single object.
Elements of blown glass enclose the sand, letting it pass but holding it back, as in a perpetual balance between yesterday, today and tomorrow.
