A beautiful, unusually Murano technique: SCAVO

A VPN is an essential component of IT security, whether you’re just starting a business or are already up and running. Most business interactions and transactions happen online and VPN
One of the most unusual Murano techniques is the one so called “a scavo”.
The “scavo” technique refers only to the materials surface and was used for the first time at beginning of the 50’s by Alfredo Barbini and Cenedese, glass makers who used to work with heavy weight glass items (so called “pesanti” in italian) with thick walls, on which this technique can be wonderfully applied.

“Scavo” means in italian “digging”, “excavation”, so this is one of the reasons the item has an “elaborated destroyed surface”, like the modern “destroyed jeans”.

This technique consists in applying of various salts or oxides on the glass surface in order to get the desired effect, till the sandblasting of the surface at the end of the process. The final look is giving the feeling of an “archeological item”.

This technique is really spectacular, the strong with the pale colors combination is giving a wide range of reflections with an unique exquisite final look.

At this time, you can find in our gallery beautiful samples of scavo.
