Project Description

The reticello technique is a fairly old one and certainly the most challenging and intricate way to incorporate a net pattern into glass. First I pull canes with colour inside, roll them up in two steps and blow them into each other. You get the net pattern and in each square there should be a bubble. This way you get a very symmetrical and complex pattern. With this technique it is fun to practice and get to a certain level of perfection but it becomes really exciting when you leave the old paths and try to find new designs and shapes that bring out the pattern even more. All the shown objects in the gallery are different and none of them follows real classic asthetics.

"a reticello", 2010 until today, dimensions vary, glass, free blown and shaped
