Velasca

The Milanese atmosphere of autumn mornings with the tower veiled by mist inspired  the profile and the surface treatment of the set Velasca. The volumes are  characterised by a flare at the top that makes it easy to grip and wants to be a  reference to the volume of the Velasca tower. A particular sandblasting is applied on the glass: this matt filter disappears  unexpectedly in contact with liquids. The set consists of 4 glasses, a cup and a bowl all from mouth-blown borosilicate glass.The sandblasted glasses fit over each other in the order vodka, wine, water, cognac. All this is inserted into a transparent container with lid, a treasure chest  of balanced composition of opacity and transparencies.

Borosilicate glass blown with the “lume” technique
