Chiara è stata molto esaustiva nelle spiegazioni, i pendenti che ho realizzato mi piacciono e sono stati apprezzati anche dai miei amici. Forse mi sarebbe piaciuto avere un po' più di tempo per riuscire a preparare il mio lavoro anche nei primi dettagli. Una bella esperienza!

THE STORY

I was born in Brescia. I've spent my childhood in a small village surrounded by hills and vineyards. In this marvelous and quiet environment I developed my passion for glass. Now, in fact, my favorite place is my Atelier. There I draw, I cut, I compose and I prepare glass. It is an ancient and fascinating element. It brought me to a continuous research for new shapes and new products to be used during the manufacturing. I find it incredible and amazing. Such a simple material has the power of making me dream about so many places, cultures, situations and collaborations. So many opportunities.
I love to mix different materials. In this way you can enhance the true nature of glass, and at the same time they suggest you something. It is here in my Atelier that I constantly create. From everyday things for the house to design objects.
The technique adopted to create my products is known as “Vetrofusione Piana”. What I'm doing is mostly focused on the design and composition phase, at closed furnace. Doing the “Vetrofusione” basically means to create a new glass. This is done through the assembly of different pieces. Once they have been heated they melt together, becoming a single piece.
A glass master uses two main tools: the heat and the force of gravity. “You have to arrange everything, so that these two elements will work for you within the furnace”. The result will depend upon the degree of communication among the Artisan, the glass and the furnace that is used.

EXPERIENCES WITH CHIARA

WORKSHOP

FULL COLOR GLASS MELTING

Chiara, glazier

90

Nearby the historic center of Brescia, in the area of Isolabella, is located my atelier of glass melting. It is closed to the historic “Borgo Trento”, that has always been characterized by the presence of artisan's ateliers. Here, immersed in colors and in a northern style environment, I create my projects. With this workshop I want to share my passion and knowledge for this amazing material. Everyone can get close to the world of artistic glass. In particular I'll make available some simple drawings and all the material that is needed to create an object through the plain glass melting technique. It will have dimensions of (25*25)cm, and it could be used as a tile or as an everyday object furniture. I'll take care of the shipping since the object needs a cooking and bending process of at least 36 hours. Otherwise it will be possible to collect it at the atelier by appointment during the next few days the cooking. Shipping costs are included in the price of the workshop.
