  • Murano glass, handcrafted
The "Clessidre" hour glasses by Venini were designed by Paolo Venini and Fulvio Bianconi in 1957: "These hand blown hour glasses leave the sand inside trickle down slowly, as if in perpetual equilibrium between today and yesterday".
Venini's mouth-blown hour glasses are made using the complex "Incalmo" technique, a technique that requires two blown shapes to be joined around their circumference while hot, creating a single object with separate areas, generally of different colour.

Venini stands apart from other glass manufacturers with its very distinct style and unique glass colours. Achieving the superior colour of the Murano glass demands great precision from the Venini glass blowers during the composition process. These traditional techniques of glass manufacture represent a skill no longer learned by many glass blowers today. The secret techniques of glass art are passed on from generation to generation.
