Mirco & his artistic work

Although Mirco is rather young, he came into the world of craftsmanship with an open heart and mind.

Learning from great masters, guiding him through the acquisition of the necessary skills to then flourish into a confident and creative artisan.

Mirco’s tasks are machine operated glass cutting and silvering. Both fundamental to the creation of mirrors, skills which require great precision as well as an artistic hand.

His passion has grown due to the fact that each silvered mirror is unique.

Something amazing and surprising to see happen.

From cut glass to mirror


Mirco & his originality

Mirco supervises the waterjet operations in glass cutting, doing it manually when the machine can’t reach the desired spot.

At this point, it is ready for engraving, bevelling and silvering.

Mirco can balance the concentration of silver to create any bespoke finish, contemporary, or light, medium, heavy antiquing just like the precious mirrors used in Venice’s glorious past.
