Venini x Versace: their partnership started in 1997 with the delicacy of a blown glass vase and the allure of the Versace label, now reproposed in 2021 with three works of the V.V.V. collection enriched by the Maison Versace's iconic transparent glass and gold leaf 'Medusa'.
Blown glass object, handmade using the "Fasce" technique enhanced by golf leaf.
The "Fasce" technique consists of hot-work application of coloured glass threads called 'fasce' to the central body, usually transparent. Then they are amalgamated with the central body and covered with a thin layer of transparent glass, thus obtaining an irregular chromatic design of great effect
Blown glass object using the "Canne" technique enhanced by gold leaf.
The "Canne" technique consists of pulled glass rods with a circular cross-section. The rod can be monochrome or made with glass pastes of different colours, transparent or opaque. Afterwards, the reeds are bundled together, fused and then blown. The object obtained is of particular value for the final effect and difficulty of execution.
Blown glass object, handmade using the "Tessere" technique enhanced by gold leaf.
The "Tessere" technique was developed in the 1950s and creates a striking decorative appearance.
There are various phases of processing. First, thin strips of coloured glass are made, then when cold the tiles are cut. After that, they are arranged on a plane following the design and fused to form the actual vase.
