Vetrazzo: Millefiori traditional-kitchen

Vetrazzo: Millefiori

The sweet scent and dazzling colors of a hillside covered with wildflowers. For centuries, Italians have made glass in brilliant colors called Millefiori – "a thousand flowers." This mix captures that beauty with salvaged glass from a renowned art glassmaker.

Glass source story
The world's largest art glass manufacturer patented a production process referred to as continuous ribbon, and what we know as stained glass. It connotes colorful ribbon candy and the rainbow of colors they produce is equally astounding. Rejects or over-runs of the glass give Millefiori its full bouquet.

The shine may just be the reflection of the natural light. Vetrazzo is composed of a patented proprietary formula that combines recycled glass with a binder of cement, additives and pigments. There are no synthetic, petroleum-based resins used.

The square shape and translucent glass of the backsplash are an excellent retro contemporary juxtaposition. Nice!
