The piece Tagliapietra gave the MIT Museum exemplifies his knack for innovation: he invented a process that combines several classical Venetian techniques, including the famously difficult reticello, wherein two separate vessels of detailed cane (ribbons of colored glass) are created and one is slipped inside the other while both are still hot. The resulting overlapping pattern reflects “a very complicated and technically challenging operation,” says Houk.
