威尼斯玻璃極品 Carlo Moretti

 

Carlo Moretti 是著名的威尼斯穆蘭諾奢華玻璃品牌,由Giovanni Moretti創始於1958年,將穆蘭諾玻璃島上傳承幾百年的手工玻璃技藝與現代文化、極簡設計風潮細緻的糅合在一起。形成Carlo Moretti獨有的風格。


玻璃由二氧化矽製成,其在高溫下會變成液體。等到其再次冷卻之前,就是手工藝人們展示技藝的時刻,也是穆拉諾的玻璃製造商們,運用精湛技藝與想像力、點石成金的時刻。


每一件Carlo Moretti玻璃製品,都是先由人工吹製成型,後經外部修飾:延續了百年的手工技藝——金色斑點玻璃工藝avventurina,切割多色片工藝millefiori和不透明奶狀玻璃工藝lattimo ,對比色分層工藝sommerso,僅看最簡單的打磨這一項工作,就有三道不同流水線。出廠前由人工雕刻上Carlo Morettilogo及出廠年份。


特別值得一提的是,Carlo Moretti是至今為止,所有Murano玻璃廠中,唯一仍堅持由自己生產吹製磨俱的廠家,所有磨俱是特殊木質,要時刻保持潮濕的含水量,以免開裂損壞。所以工廠有專門的一層角落製作了噴淋系統,來儲存這些磨俱。能製作出不同樣式的磨俱也正是各工廠最視為珍寶的工廠核心機密。

 

Strolling afoot through the foundations of Murano, the visitor provided with refined sensitivity, lost in a myriad of gift shops and restaurants duly arranged for mass tourism, would find himself unpleasantly surprised. Fortunately, with the aid of specific information and a brisk curiosity, she or he would come to discover a genuine artisan factory. The artisan factory bearing Carlo Moretti’s trademark.


Established in 1958 by Carlo and Giovanni Moretti, it represents a unique occurrence on the island of glass, mingling entrepreneurship and authorship in the works of art created in their furnace with the close collaboration of glass masters.


For over 50 years, the firm founded by the Moretti brothers has drawn the attention of the international market due to its distinctive formula, which merges the centennial craftsmanship of the island’s glass masters (handed down from father to son) with contemporary Italian design.


When talking about glass, Carlo and Giovanni Moretti use a completely new language. Perhaps because they had to step up to the challenge when they were still very young, provided with that peculiar technical background which only a century-long family tradition and the artistic fertility of a place like Murano can hand down.


Starting from the beginning of the 70s, the production of the Carlo Moretti firm took a distance from the historic practice of working glass, confronting itself with a much broader horizon in which the expressive value of form is newly acknowledged.


Thus the quest for new shapes, clean and essential, and the research in technical innovation, with an experimental approach both in the use of components – to obtain a highly transparent top quality glass – and in the contrivance of the most appropriate working tools. The firm’s distinctive traits.


The culture of the beautiful and the essential, found in the Moretti glass production, stems from the great curiosity and attention dedicated to what lies beyond the island’s limited confines.


The sources of inspiration are countless, from the colors of the lagoon to the most highly advanced human inventions. Then, there is the uninterrupted daily exchange between two different personalities having distinct fields of competence: Carlo, mainly devoted to design, teamed up with his brother Giovanni for the ideation of new products, incessantly interacts with the handicraft of the glass masters. New creations thus come to life, tangible proofs of the magical duality inherent to the substance used, which harbors two contradictory souls, a solid and a liquid one.


“Cult” commodities for the table and the home, vases, chalices and glasses having the power to influence habits and tastes. Created in Murano Crystal glass in limited number, mouth-blown, finished off by hand “in the air”, then signed one by one and provided with a certificate of authenticity. More and more dedicated to a public of art collectors, these objects have found their collocation in the most important world museums.

 

Carlo Moretti is therefore an “artisan factory” – one of the few left in Murano – where creativity and strategic choices coincide in a personal and unmistakable trademark.
