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.

Sicily, an ancient whilst modern land.
Crystal clear sea and historic architecture, hot sirocco wind that burns the air, ash from its volcanoes, barren and wild nature. There is not just one interpretation, you have to steep yourself into the depth of this archaic land to grasp its different nuances.
Vendicari is a nature conservation area, a paradise in which different natural elements coexist: this aesthetic power is the inspiration in the finish created by Giovanni Luca Ferreri.
Not just furniture, but a work of art that perfectly epitomises the uniqueness and violence of the Sicilian landscape.
Extra clear glass, 6 mm thickness, an abstract artistically enameling made with spread gold leaf and black colour. Varnished with gold paint and silvered with medium antique finish.
