Ever since 1976 Pierluigi Penzo and his collaborators have been producing
stained glass windows, These windows have enhanced and decorated private
residences, public spaces of worship in and throughout Italy and the world. The
latest of these works, a reproduction of Titian’s “Amore sacro e profano” 2006
(140 x 268 cm), is a collaboration with the glass master Ruggero Costantin, This
piece has been exhibited in numerous galleries.

Over the years Venetian beads have been produced by using
the antique method from Murano (Venice), called “a lume”. This was a method that
used an oil lamp in which air was blown into by way of a bellow. Nowadays,
modern tools are used to create these beads. One by one the fused glass is
rolled around a thin metal rod as new colors or gold/silver leaf is added.

Instead of speaking about ‘glass fusion’, it is more correct to use the term ‘thermoforming’:
the layering of different types of colored glass (in our case Murano glass)
combined with fragments of glass, murrine and granules of avventurina glass.
These layers are positioned on a firing body or refractory stone and heated to
750° and 850°c. At this temprature the layers melt together and can form various
objects such as plates, trays, pendants, frames, etc. We have been producing “vetrofusion”
for many years, creating various objects such as unique costume jewelry, mirrors,
We combine our interest in experimenting new techniques with our extensive
Venetian glassmaking knowledge. We continue to collaborate with Venetian Glass
Masters along with Umbrian and Lazian Ceramists in an original and unique
creative mix. In this way our products are competitive, both in quality and
price, in a continually demanding market. Our products are preferred to
analogous products produced by emerging countries such as India and China.
