“Take life lightly, for lightness is not superficiality, but gliding above things, not having weights on your heart”.
It is from this famous phrase by Italo Calvino that the design of “ariosi” vases was born. The lightness of the mouth-blown glass is accentuated by the glass-working technique used, made pouring into the molten glass a component that reacts and in doing so releases gas bubbles. The small bubbles enclosed in the glass create an extremely light and “airy” texture. Each piece is shaped freehand, therefore unique.
Material: Mouth-blown glass vase with a bubbly texture, sandblasted and waxed to obtain a satin, smooth and soft surface. It has a 1cm wide hole for hanging it to the wall.

Slight variations may apply due to a handmade production process.
This piece has been designed by Laura Sattin and made in collaboration with skilled glass-blowers in a furnace at the foot of the Bernese Alps, in Switzerland. The slight variations in shape and subtle tool marks that can be seen in the glass, all testify to the authenticity of the craftsmanship.
