PASTORELLI

On a visit to Glassmedjen, you will find a wide selection of Pastorelli pieces as this is Nanna Backhaus' favourite glass art technique. Pastorelli pieces are playful and inviting and looks good enough to eat. Demanding and time-consuming to do, though! The pieces go through several processes, require an eye for colour and a high level of precision to become perfect. You will find this technique applied to bowls, dishes, vases and lamp shades.
