Murano glass chandelier, 8 lights.
Carefully handmade following the ancient Murano glass traditions and knowledge.
The technique used for this product is the vetro lattimo (or opalino) incamiciato.
The product features three superimposed layrs of glass: crystal, lattimo, and colored transparent glass. This technique is used to obtain an opaque effect.
The lattimo or opalino glass is a white opaque glass, invented in Murano during the second half of the 15th Century to imitate porcelain.
The white milky color is created by the presence of micro crystals in the glass that change its index of light refraction: the micro crystals do not absorb light but reflect it instead, determining both the opacity and the white color.
This effect is obtained adding to the glass mixture cryolite, zinc oxide, or alumina.
