Acqua Alta

In Angelo Barovier’s furnace, in the XV Century, opaque white glass began, which imitated crystal, and milky glass, which lent itself to similarities with precious Ming porcelain. Acqua Alta is the trophy of this story, all Venetian: the transparent crystal and its lagoon reflections, the milky glass of the Murano furnaces, the tripod that keeps the vase raised from the ground, in memory of the stilts used by the Venetian noblewomen to not wet their precious clothes in the tidal days.
