Conjuring memories of the brilliant luminescence of warm tropical seas, these artisan cast glass tables glow with color. Each console table is hand-forged by pouring molten glass into a shaped mold and then bending the flat glass into an arc. Once the glass cools, an artist individually applies genuine gold leaf or silver leaf and colored paints to the back side. Rich textural effect are created by the random crinkles in the metal leaf which reflect and refract light. The top surface is polished to a high gloss that shines like calm, glassy water. The bottom/inner surface is finished in metallic gold (for the aquamarine color) or silver (for the deep sea blue color).
In addition to the console tables, this collection includes mirrors and dining tables made with the same technique.
All the cast glass items are completely hand made by Italian craftsmen using the age-old techniques of master glass makers. Not only do these pieces enliven the home, they are valuable works of art to be treasured for years to come.
