The Fountain Reticello objects from Murano are made using the old, original Venetian Reticello technique by Master Gianni Seguso. Typical for the original Venetian Reticello technique are small air bubbles in a grid pattern between the crossing lines. The inspiration source for all Fountain Reticello objects are old Italian fountains.

It was wonderful that Markku Piri could collaborate with Gianni Seguso, one of the few rare Masters in Murano who can handle the demanding old “Reticello” technique. Typical for the Reticello technique is the air bubble that is left in between the double filigrane stripes. Maestro Seguso’s work is pure poetry and mathematics combined. Cobalt blue and white filigrane is a classic.
