THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS
NIDO Glass leg for dining table design by architect Giovanni Marani
Open cast crystal reticulum with satin milled and terminals. From information given in the MARIEGOLA ( statute of the glassmakers’ guild), we know that towards the middle of the XVI th century, fine blown glass pieces a redexello (so called because the pattern is similar to that of a fisherman’s rete or net) were being produced in the island. Perhaps the idea for this technique really did spring from these nets, a familiar sight for seafaring people like the Venetians.
