Black and White Hand Blown Zanfirico and Latticino Hollow Glass Bead.
Ancient Venetian style glassmaking techniques are used to create these lovely filigree glass beads. First I create the glass canes to be used in the bead. Then they are cut and sorted, only the best matching canes are used. The canes are then fused on a ceramic plate in the glory hole, then rolled around the glassblowing pipe. Then the tube is closed at the end and the blowing of the beads begins! A many stage process.
