We named this carafe Grizzana, after a commune near the city of Bologna where the Italian still life painter, Giorgio Morandi, was born. Grizzana is known as a summer holiday resort area located in the mountains. Morandi painted using oil paints to create still life compositions with bottles, carafes, and everyday objects. As a painter herself, Valentina was inspired by Morandi to create a series of simple minimalist objects in hand blown glass, crafted for your everyday use. Grizzana is made of one hundred percent recycled glass and is mouth blown by our artisans. Use Grizzana as a carafe, decanter, bud vase, or recreate your own still life painting with several pieces such as Giorgio, Morandi, and Levico.
These are entirely made by hand and each creation is unique. Therefore, there may be a slight variation in color, texture, and size between each piece. On the base of each item, you can feel the pontil mark left by the glassblower’s cane. The presence of this mark indicates that the glass was blown freehand. This is the beauty of handmade.
The Grizzana carafe is available in transparent.
