Perdomo Mexican Smalti

Perdomo Mexican Smalti
Hard to find New World Smalti by the Perdomo family of Mexico. Created using the traditional methods of Murano but with local ingredients and minerals to create a unique product. The glass is poured into `tortillas`and handcut vertically with a hammer and hardy to produce tesserae that is roughly 18 x 18mm and 5-6 mm thick. This cut is called Piastrine in classic Italian mosaics. As it is thinner than Italian smalti it is easier to work with and cut Mexican smalti also offers a special advantage of having both a ´right´ face and a ´wrong´ base side that display subtle colour and texture variations. This means that by flipping a piece over you gain even more colours and finishes. Additionally as each piece has a greater surface area there is a wonderful range of tonal marbling within a single colour shade. However this also means that there are greater batch differences per colour therefore please buy enough of a colour to complete a project. We recommend that you use Leponitt wheeled nippers to get the best results from this extraordinary product.
