The Roll-Up Technique is an ancient technique which originates in the 1500s on the island of Murano and it is the same used to make the famous Murrine. In the furnace, everything strats with simple, tidy rods of coloured glass, which the artist chooses and puts together, always following his instinct and, at the same time, thinking of tradition and trying for innovation.
“To practise a technique which is equally clever and modern, my mind looks back to the Middle Ages and my body looks at Murano. This is the thought that allows me to work the coloured glass so effectively that I am able to convey it in what I am feeling the instant before blowing”.
The Furnace is tought to ba a space to create, and also to meet. A place open to everybody, every artistic influence and idea, open to suggestions of art lovers and creative people alike, anyone who likes to experiment.
