After graduating from art school, our artisan Amedeo founded his glass workshop in Verona, Italy. From the time his sons Valentino and Roberto were old enough to hold a paintbrush, they have worked alongside their father, becoming expert craftsmen and artisans in their own rights. Today, the three transform ordinary glass into luminous works of art, one at a time.
Each silver-leafed sealife wine glass of Verona is masterfully handcrafted in a third-generation workshop where he and his sons transform ordinary glass into works of art. After applying a stucco design to the wine glass, a layer of color and silver leaf is added by hand to create each piece. Once completely dry, they are hand-polished to a gleaming luster reminiscent of the sea.
