An hourglass created using the lume (lampwork)technique. Available in a variety of colours and sizes. The two halves are blown and shaped by hand, heating the glass with a furnace called a cannello, and then are joined together, reheating the two parts where they meet (a technique called incalmo). These works are made by the glass master craftsmen Cortella and Ballarin.
