Rustic Venetian floor light with handblown amber scavo glass diffuser
A traditional tall amber Venetian ‘scavo’ glass floor lantern with a steel wire frame and an elegant curved bronze pedestal, entirely hand-produced on the famous glass-making island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon.
The mould for this beautiful wall lantern is first fashioned from steel wire. The glass-master then blows the molten glass into the frame where it expands into the lovely curved shape you see here, before it is allowed to cool.
A special chemical is used to erode parts of the surface of the glass, to give it a rustic finish.
This piece may bear some tiny imperfection that will attest to its having been fashioned entirely by hand, thus increasing its value and uniqueness. It is based on a historical design and has been crafted using purely traditional techniques.
