The inlay method

For Vitrum Arte we have developed a decorative technique that consists in applying designs on glass by hand using an extraordinary inlay method. This is an extremely innovative process that still requires the patient and essential work of man.

Just like in the past, we too use the traditional technique that is performed entirely by hand and makes each piece unique.

So that they can be inlaid on glass panels, the original designs are vectorised to obtain plain, even-coloured backgrounds without any differences in shade or transparencies. The designs are cut out from special coloured film and then applied to the tempered glass panels by hand. Any small imperfections in matching the films are proof of the precious manual process employed and of the value of tailor-made production.
