LAMPWORKING

IN THE WORLD OF
JEWELS IN GLASS

Learn and try lampworking techniques by creating your own pearl in glass of Murano.

GLASS WORK TECHNIQUES

This technique has been applied in Venice since the Renaissance and later developed in the 18th century. It consists in shaping semi-finished products in the form of tubes and rods, with different diameters and thicknesses.

First one softens the piece with the heat of a horizontal flame fueled by methane gas and oxygen (or air), then one models it with small tools, possibly shaping it into a human or animal figure.

The pearls are obtained by winding the melted glass around a copper or iron wire coated with a refractory material. Through glass blowpipe modeling, you can create sculptures, figures or jewellery, pendants, rings or necklaces.

On account of the lower temperature, the mixture of gas and air allows for more delicate decorations, typical of the Venetian pearl.

THE AIM

Students, after receiving information about equipment and safety, will be introduced to the technique of modelling.

The aim of the course is the realization of the first elementary objects, performed first by hand and then with the use of clamps using rods of different colours and sizes.

The course teaches the basic techniques, in order to deal later in another course with the pearl, massif and blown glass techniques.
