gessato glass pitcherby Federico de Majo
- the story
An Uncanny Carafe
Federico de Majo's vibrant, mouth-blown pitcher transports the distinguished glasswork design of Northern Italy from the gallery to your kitchen table. Federico was raised in the artisanal isle of Murano, Italy—renowned worldwide for its craftsmen's exquisite lace and glass—and his upbringing and over 40 years of experience culminate in the tactful, sculptural lines that make up his unique piece.
Borrowing its name from the Italian word for "pinstripe," his contoured carafe features a lustrous, aquamarine tint separated by snowy white strokes. Whether it's cradling punch or chilled water, this icy blue vessel makes beverages sparkle with old-world sophistication and well-honed style. Designed in Murano, Italy. Mouth-blown and hand-worked in Thailand.
Complement your carafe with a matching set of two Gessato Glass Tumblers.

Federico de Majo
Federico de Majo was raised in his family's vetreria on the isle of Murano. Federico was immersed in the beauty and craft of the glass blower's art and soon became the factory's in-house designer. He left the family business in the 1980's, but has continued his work designing hand-blown and artistic glassware continuously.
Federico de Majo has a profound awareness of the secrets of glass shaping, which results in multifaceted collections of wine-tasting glasses, art glasses, tableware accessories, lighting fixtures and decorative accessories that are sourced at fine glass factories worldwide.
