Sommerso (lit. “submerged”), or “sunken glasses“, is a form of artistic Murano glass that has
layers of contrasting colors (typically two), which are formed by dipping a gather of colored
glass into another molten glass and then blowing the gather into the desired shape; the
outermost layer, or casing, is often clear. Sommerso was developed in Murano during the late
thirties and was made popular in the fifties. This process is a popular technique for vases, and
is sometimes used for sculptures.
