5 Band Vase
Sleek, modern design is achieved using the centuries’ old technique of incalmo. In Venetian dialect, the word incalmo translates to “graft” (as in plants) and in glass, it is the fusing together of independent bubbles of hot glass. Incalmo is a difficult technique to master as two glassblowers must each create a bubble the exact same diameter to join together. Any number of bubbles can be “stacked” together and the complexity of the process increases with each one added. This 5 Banded Vase is, therefore, more complex than our 3 Banded vase. The final visual effect relies on the size of the bubbles or “bands” and the placement of color within the piece. Signed and dated by the designer, Monique LaJeunesse – Little River Hotglass Studio.
