The spun mosaic technique involves the fire spinning of the glazes to obtain multiple shades and various shapes of the tesserae and was born in Rome at the end of the eighteenth century, where it immediately became famous as a tool for composing small works. During the eighteenth century mosaicists were trained in the famous Fabbrica di San Pietro, who will contribute to the decoration of the Basilica of San Pietro with colored glass enamels, cut into square shapes and fixed with mastic. Unlike painting or fresco, the mosaic is composed of a non-perishable material and less subject to degradation due to infiltration of humidity and impurities in the environment. Hence the minute and spun mosaics, this technique allows you to produce tesserae in many colors and often less than a millimeter in size. To make a wand, called a display case, we take several mothers dyed with glass glazes and put them in a crucible. By fusing the glass paste with a flame and, when the dough is well blended, the cases are spun with a fire tongs.
