“The memory of the furnace conveyed by the Siderale Vase collection derives from the very process of glass making. In this design, a master glass blower’s tool, intended as a means rather than as an end, has been released from its traditional function and freed to acquire aesthetic and evocative value. Cones bearing all the marks of production have become enigmatic stalactites of ice with a totally new function.” - Giorgio Vigna
The Siderale Collection by Giorgio Vigna features the beaten technique, which was developed in the 1930s. Beaten and cut glass is characterized by an engraved surface with small irregular parallel scratches.
