Venini Clessidre Hourglass
Both timeless and contemporary in form, the Clessidre hourglass highlights intricate engineering, courtesy of the incalmo technique employed where the two colors meet. This technique fuses the two colors of glass while the glass is still hot—a true art form. Founded in 1920 on the famed Venetian island of Murano, Italy, Venini Glassworks honors the uncompromising nature of its master craftsmen by tirelessly seeking new, rich colors and textures that move the art form beyond its traditional limitations and make it truly contemporary. Venini’s nearly century-long commitment to both progress and perfection allows them to offer a collection of decorative objects made of hand-blown Murano glass that is as daring as it is exquisite.
