Especially vibrant, shimmering colors are characteristic of the Smalto series mosaic. Using artisan techniques, the enamel granules are added to the glass where they color the tesserae with a particular flamed effect, making them unique and one-of-a-kind.
Use of a special mold is key to producing the wavy effect in the Flow glass mosaic tesserae. The rich, vibrant hues are attained through the use of oxides that, fusing completely with the glass, allow the creation of pure colors. The addition of sand to the pâte de verre during the coloring phase produces a typical sand-blasted effect that lends greater three-dimensionality to the color.
