  • Description

    Imagine pulling threads of hot coloured glass so fine they’re like hair. Twist them together, fusing them with heat to form a coloured cane. Line up lengths of cane and blend them to form a tube, heat & mouth blow at least 20 times to gradually form each ball. Using your (insulated) hand to help form the shape, closing each end and hand applying a loop. That is Zanfirico. An ancient Venetian technique mastered in Scotland and a Christmas decoration we’ve been trying to make for some years....
