Finishing | Glass Artwork
The Sophistication of Decorated Glass. Made in Italy
Arte Veneziana, for over fifty years, committed to pursuing the excellence of Made in Italy craftsmanship, wanted to give free rein to the imagination and creativity of its designers and craftsmen. That’s how the finishing section was born. It recounts about accurate studies with colour and combinations between traditional and new materials expressed in a new, contemporary way.
The inspiration comes from nature and its landscapes. The ever shifting variety of colours and shapes are the subjects of the painted glass walls, of the pen-engraved screens, of the finishes of our furnishings. Each finish can be applied in a thousand different ways. You can furnish a wall, cover a cabinet, decorate the doors of a bespoke closet or even apply the decoration to coffee tables or nightstands and, why not, also to chandeliers with a modern twist.

Those who live at the foot of the volcano know how violent and unpredictable nature can be.
It is precisely the ambivalence of opposites that takes shape in this new finish: chiaroscuro, ash-light, storm-quiet, contrasts that fit into a domestic environment and contemporary furnishings, causing us to contemplate on the nature of our surroundings, and of which often we are unaware.

“All that nature has of great, all it has of pleasant, all that has of terrible, can be compared to Etna and Etna cannot be compared to anything."Dominique Vivand Denon
