The incalmo is a technique of the Murano glass tradition dating back to the sixteenth century but fully exploited in the 70s of the twentieth century. It allows to obtain blown glass characterized by two or more areas of different color by welding two different glass bodies along an edge of equal diameter. The single body obtained can be further blown and modeled even more than once. With this elaborate and complex technique, the Hourglass in indigo and taupe colors is conceived, an iconic object of the VENINI which has the signature of the founder.
