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.
by Gianluca Ferreri
For the creative process of Tuscany Giovanni Luca Ferreri is inspired by what Italian beauty has to offer. Endless landscapes and expanses of wheat fields where tree-lined avenues and beautiful blue skies stand out. It is Tuscany and its postcard scenarios that unleash the creativity of the designer who, in an aesthetic vision, photographs those details reproducing them on glass, the ideal artist's palette. Glass is still the protagonist and here it is painted in earthy nuances with an alternation of gold leaf, gradually fading greens and luminous blues.
Four glass panels decorated with scratched gold leaf, painted and silvered with heavy antique finish.
Color palette that recalls a typical Tuscan landscape.
Standard dimensions of a single panel: L. 80 cm, H. 260 cm
