The artistic window is a play of light, colored fragments embedded in a profile of lead. It is a relatively young art compared to other techniques of glass decoration and knows its heyday between 1100 and 1300 with the great Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals.
After a decline period, at the end of the nineteenth century, with the Art Nouveau and Liberty it can be witnessed a revival of stained glass, rediscovered by artists, architects and craftsmen. The artistic avant-gards of the twentieth century explore the expressive power, experimenting with new techniques and making stained glass window a contemporary element.
The “vetro artefatto” craftshop interprets sensitive taste of the client, the architecture and the different techniques of glass art, creating stained glass windows of great beauty. For stained glasses made in this craftshop, only the finest materials are used, hand-blown glass and opal for stained glass, often enriched by grisaille painted inserts and baked at high temperature with oxides and enamels, where the details and figures are more defined. The fused stained glass windows have a contemporary and fresh flavor, the decoration inspired by abstract contemporary paintings make these windows adapted to modern furnishings. The fusing is also appropriate for classic environments with the right decorum. The engravings, also known as sandblasting, are always an elegant choice and have a very sober visual impact, suitable for those who, in their home furniture, do not like the color. In addition, the stained glass windows in mixed techniques but also the tempered or laminated stained glass are created to meet the clients’ new demands.
