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.

Blinding sunlight, golden reflections that stretch into infinity.
The feeling of moving away from time and space to end up in uncontaminated places where nature is present in all of its power. A precious show reserved for those who want to savour the Italian south in its deepest essence. The sea and the sky blend, the gaze turns away while the mind travels towards primitive landscapes.
The closeness to nature returns strong and visceral thanks to the artistic gesture that Giovanni Luca Ferreri puts in place, creating the new Gargano finish.
Extra clear acid-etched glass, 6 mm thickness, hand engraved with diamond grinding wheel in abstract artistical pattern. Varnished with gold paint and silvered with heavy antique finish.
