What is venice glass mosaic of Mosaici Donà
In the furnace the manufacturing methods have not changed. In ancient times the tesserae were made up of natural and raw materials and therefore were not pure. The surface of the venice glass fragments thus had very uneven points which contributed to the desired effect of scattering light. The modern industrial compounds used in glass production are extremely pure. Thus obtaining even minimal variations suitable for Byzantine-type textures becomes very difficult. Only a highly skilled master glassmaker can achieve the required results by working with special colour mixtures.
