Seguso family has been living and working in Murano for 650 years and, according to the best glass tradition, creates all the objects by blowing glass.
We have the great honour to keep any Murano’s secret alive thanks to our masters and their infinite knowledge.We still use tools and furnaces which reflect the flow of time, and represent the ancient essence and functionality.
Objects and sculptures modeling by using incandescent glass is one of the techniques Archimede managed perfectly. It was a real master since the early XX century.
Al the objects (vases, bowls, glasses…) are mouth-blown in iron canes. Sometimes, glass thickness defines colour and nuance; other times, the object holds gold particles on its inside.
This feature is due to one or more 24K gold leaves. They are applied on the preparatory glass and then completely covered by another glass layer.
Very attractive are the glass stick works and the “murrine”.
Archimede Seguso re-invented the “eighteenth-century filigree” and was able to manage the glass canes so perfectly that he created some textures like no others. That’s the reason why museums and collectors compete each others to have one of these masterpieces.
Giuseppe Kappa, famous historian from Luxembourg, described Archimede Seguso as the “living encyclopaedia of glass”.
