THE SOMMERSO COLLECTION: ANIMA Table Light
We wanted to launch our Collections with the most beautiful of all techniques – sommerso – in the most beautiful of all materials – Murano glass.
Sommerso is so called because it is the Italian for ‘submerged’: one or more colours are submerged within others and (usually) an outer clear layer. Our Sommerso Collection bases look simple, but they require exceptional mastery of the material. They are freeblown (not made in a mould).
The shape of the inner glass (which changes as the glass around it is worked) and the outer shape are controlled by hand and by eye, not helped by the fact that the glass is solid and so very heavy! The shades for all the Cameron Peters Collections are available in any of the 160 colours of Pongees 745 duppion silk and are lined in a complementary shade of satin.
This is Anima. A delicate gold form floats in a sea of clear Murano glass. She seems to be a benevolent spirit (hence the name).
