How it’s made?

Tiepolo vase in Murano glass is made with the “canne” technique.

On a metal plate covered with refractory clay (formerly mud from the “barena”, the muddy bumps that emerge during low tide in the lagoon) called “piera” the design is created by combining the glass rods cut to size.

The “piera” is heated in such a way that the chopsticks, softening, melt together. With a blow pipe, a bit of glass is collected from the crucible and the “imbocaura” is created, a kind of disc with which the melted glass rods are collected, thus creating a cylinder.

This cylinder is repeatedly heated and passed on a metal surface called “bronzino” to compact and join the colored glass rods. This cylinder, once closed, will allow the blowing of the object you want to create.

In the composition there are various types of glass rods of different transparent and opaque colors.

Particular is the presence of the spiral rods called “Zanfirico” from the name of the Venetian antiquarian Antonio Sanquirico who in the nineteenth century commissioned copies of antique glass made with these rods with variously intertwined spiral threads.

Particularly the two “pinzi” the tips that are pulled with the “tweezers” by the master after having heated the edge of the pot in the oven.

We chose the name Tiepolo because the colors recall the atmosphere of the great painter.
