Fratelli Pezza

POCULUM, the sandblasted glass that can be worn

“Un artigiano sognatore”, alias Umberto Tofoni, third generation of a family of glass makers from the Marche region, one day in March 2014 had an illumination that literally changed his life: creating the first glass bow tie making it a cult object thanks to the sandblasting technique

«I have been using the GHIBLI sandblasting cabin manufactured by Fratelli Pezza for years now and I must say that I am really happy with it, I need cleanliness and precision when I sandblast my POCULUM and this sandblaster is perfectly fit to it!».

Thanks to sandblasting Umberto can create stylish designs of any kind on glass, following the trends of the moment such as the textured effects, obtained by blasting at different depths.
