The Siena plates are inspired by old examples of Siena’s coat-of-arms, dated between 1500 and 1700, a period in which they were more modest in shapes and colours and therefore rather modern on an aesthetic point of view.
The “contrada” of Lupa is distinguished by horizontal stripes, the “contrada” of Onda by a sinuous wave, the “contrada” of Giraffa by spikes and the “contrada” of Bruco by its background divided into four parts. Each dish has been conceived and designed as a precious cockade, it is a unique, hand-made piece realised following the tradition of glassblowing from Murano.
The shapes and the surfaces seem fluid and slightly irregular, the hand-finished edges give a sharp-cut effect, reproduce the movement of a round fabric remnant.
During the last step of the process, each dish was soaked in crystals, this technique brings out delightful shades and transparency to the colour. The black glass assumes a pleasing silk-like appearance, which gradually turns into an intense blue.
