Cortella & Ballarin:
The Cortella & Ballarin company was founded in 1982 in Murano from the union of three partners united by the passion for lampwork. It is a very ancient processing method that has evolved over the centuries. Originally, the flame of a lamp gave off the heat necessary to melt the glass, today it has been replaced by a metal torch connected to a propane or methane gas cylinder reinforced by oxygen emissions to increase the temperature of the fire to be directed on the glass . With this technique, these objects are made that combine the skill and technique of this ancient Murano glass art together with the creativity and originality of the design that make each artifact unique, completely handmade.
