Lago di Como Blown-Glass Cardinal Ornament
Ermengildo & Renata
Since 1966, Ermengildo and his wife Renata have been crafting and decorating blown-glass ornaments in the picturesque village of Bellagio, near Italy’s Lake Como. Together with their daughter Annalisa, they create each delicate ornament, gathering a dab of molten glass at the end of a tube, then heating it over a flame as they gently blow to inflate the shape. Each is then masterfully hand painted, with no two ever exactly alike.
