mandruzzato or ?
« on: October 25, 2009, 01:23:08 PM »
hi everyone,
i bought this bowl on eBay about a year ago, for a lovely low price.
its 16.5 cm W, and 6.0cm H.
i had the the devil of a job trying to photograph it,
because of the finish it relects light all over the place, I tried a light tent too.

what type of finish does it have.
i've trawled through all the mandruzzato literature online and have found nothing similar.
any idea's.
I love this piece, it seems to offer something new everytime i look at it

The finish is a crackle or cracked ice effect. The hot glass is plunged into cold water, which causes it to crack, and then it is reheated to seal the cracks

I've seen a lot of 'geode' type bowls but I've never seen one like this before.  Crackle seems an odd technique to use on a sommerso bowl as you kinda lose the effect of the submerged layer with it.  Thanks for showing us something different!  :thup:   (unless anyone else has seen this effect before on a sommerso bowl?)  :)

i agree Max, tell you the truth,
i have sometimes wondered if it is in fact not Murano.
The way it catches light and throws the colours out is pretty nice, if i do say so myself.
its a piece i would be reluctant to part with

Definitely one to keep hold of until you can find out more about it...or enjoy permanently!   :thup:

hi jerry,
thanks for putting your pics on.
obviously the same finish, yours had the inside of the bowl poloshed , whereas mine isn't
the only part of my bowl thats polished is the rim, oh and the base.

be interesting if they came from the same maker  :hiclp:
