Barbini Bowl - Diamond Quilted and Bullicante?
« on: January 07, 2008, 07:31:02 PM »
First off, I assumed this was by Barbini, but would love confirmation. Secondly, it got bullicante, but also another effect...Would you call it diamond quilted, or is there a better description? I hope it shows enough for you to see what I mean, Thanks in advance!

Hi Shannon,
I would say yes to Barbini.
As for the quilted effect, or after-effect... It is produces from the gold over the bubbles.
Some bowls have it more pronounced than others.
It depends on how big the bubbles are, and how close they are to the surface.

I had a Barovier & Toso bowl that had a diamond quilt with trapped bubble design. The bowl was unusual because the upper sides of the bowl had heavy gold, but the bottom sides did not have any gold covering the diamond quilt frame. The bowl showed that the glass had a structure inside that looked almost like a stiff white paper framework shaped into diamonds with a bubble trapped in each diamond. I do not know what the framework was made of. Perhaps someone here knows. I uploaded a picture to give an idea of how the structure looked. Seeing this made me wonder if the DQ-trapped bubble was done on a frame, giving the bowl the appearance that it has. It would probably be quite a complex procedure.

BTW, I wasn't meaning that your bowl is a BT bowl. Yours does look more like Barbini (as you mentioned) or Fratelli Toso.

I'd assumed that the quilting came from a mould, like a balloton. Bullicante can be created by having spikes inside a mould, blowing the glass into the mould, and then casing the glass to create the bubbles. The quilting effect would created at the same time time. Of course, this is based purely on my assumptions, not on any knowledge, a dangerous approach. I just went to check ballotton on the Barovier & Toso definition site and their definition seems to support my assumption. The link is http://www.barovier.com/s_community/voc_detail.asp?id=16
