HALF MOULDING

by Rosa Barovier Mentasti
This was one of the main techniques in the Venetian Renaissance and the façon de Venise glassworks. This technique has never been abandoned in Murano.

A blown object attached to a blow pipe is partially immersed in a crucible so that half of it is covered length-wise by another outside layer of glass. It is then placed in a metal ribbed mould which is imprinted only on the outside layer. By rotating everything, the ribbing can also become spiral-shaped.
