Rectangular orange-caramel sections of semi-opaque glass edged in amethyst achieve a surprisingly flexible structural geometry in Tessere Ambra. Designed in 1956, this series marks the beginning of two decades of successful experimentation with glass tessere. The piece presented here exhibits nearly perfect geometric patterning in a rare and unusual form.
