luca nichetto presents otto, a limited edition collection of vases which are shaped in the number ‘8’. the skill of the glassblower lies in his ability to shape glass with simple and natural gestures. starting with the archetypal form of the cylindrical vase, these vessels are produced by first obtaining a truncated conical form followed by a clean cut at the top level. this technique showcases the object’s eight layers of glass, revealing the diverse chromatic tones of its interior. the vases will be sold exclusively in venini stores.
