CLESSIDRE HOURGLASS

This elegant hourglass combines the Venetian glass tradition and a contemporary aesthetic. Handcrafted of mouth-blown glass with the "incalmo" technique, the two bulb-shaped elements are welded together when the glass is still hot.

“Little grains of sand, impalpable and unnoticeable as a whole yet so real, like time ticking away. In 1957, Fulvio Bianconi and Paolo Venini captured time and shaped it into Clessidra. Perfectly balanced between two different colors, sand flows through sleek glass, crafted using the Incalmo technique; as it flows, it gradually colors, becoming an integral part of the glass.”
