Description Murano Cathedral glass with white gold applied to one facet of the glass, which is hand-scored and hand-placed into a grey mortar, set in a steel frame. Produced by artist CaCO3 in Italy.

The works of CaCO3 appear as moving and undulating surfaces, in which the tesserae are of glass - sometimes colored or enclosing gold leaf (as here).
These small pieces start from a sheet of glass which is scored into strips and the cut into small pieces with the use of special pincers. Each piece is inserted into a layer of wet cement mortar using a mosaic Hammer and anvil. The mortar is mixed with oxide to obtain different chromatic shades. The tesserae may be arranged in many different ways and can appear to be slightly undulating. Their varied appearance, due to the changes in the inclination with which they are set into the cement is able to generate numerous effects - movement, rotation, modularity, or pulsating; for this reason CaCO3 mosaics often have optical effect.
