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.
Handmade Wall Covering
by Leo De Carlo
The protagonist of Posidonia is a seabed made with a pen engraving technique with a diamond ball. Algae, corals and anemones are then painted and shaded by hand, while the effect of the ocean depth is obtained by silvering the wall by hand with rare craftsmanship.
Each glass panel is pen etched both on the surface and on
the back, it is then hand painted and only in the final stage it
is silvered with a heavy antique finish.
N.B. Colours may differ slightly from the original image as this is a handcrafted piece.
