Handmade with Murano glass, the ‘Clessidre’ consists of two parts — grape and red — blown separately and fused together with a Venetian glassblowing technique known as incalmo.
Incalmo is a very difficult technique which consists of melting together two blown forms to obtain a single, composite piece, usually with parts of different colours.
