From Casarialto Glass to Casarialto Atelier

“Born and raised in France, I have been studying, discovering, and meeting masters of Italian craftsmanship for over twenty years now. Moved by the desire to collaborate and help artisans enhance their visibility, I am launching a new project of co-creations that combines creativity and savoir faire in a series of exclusive pieces. I collaborate challenging and encouraging them to create something completely new and unique, an object they have never made before.”

This is the feeling that motivated Catherine Urban to kick off the CASARIALTO ATELIER project

Discover the unique projects that celebrate the talent of local artisans. Each piece tells a story, ready to become a part of yours.

07 - Tornasole

BreathGeneration is a project for monitoring, analysis and data processing of air quality. Air pollution is a real problem that can no longer be ignored. The first step has to arise from the awareness of the individual. This need has given birth to Tornasole, an instrument that not only analyzes the air and its components, but is also an aesthetic and decorative object handcrafted from Murano glass.

05 - Golden Leaf Boxes

Stefania Dei Rossi developped a unique style based on the dialogue between the pencil and gold leaf, usually applied on a two-dimensional level. With Casarialto Atelier we brought her technique to a three-dimensional level by applying her drawing to wooden boxes.
Entirely decorated by hand with gold leaf on the print of an original graphite drawing these wood boxes are finished with shellac. The interior is lacquered.

04 - Mirror Trays

This set of trays embodies the perfect combination of Eastern minimalism and ultra light design, with a meticulous milling enhancing the tropic-inspired details skillfully cut by Giovanni, the artisan of Venetian glass mirrors. These tropical-themed motifs do not usually belong to the Venetian tradition, they are a modern and exotic accent introduced by Catherine to create a harmonious blend of traditions and inspirations.
