Burano is an island in the Lagoon of Venice, famous for its lace. This plate is created with a slice of Bricola wood, the traditional timber pole planted in the Lagoon seabed, characterized by the tunnels carved by the molluscs that create a pattern of solids and voids, lights and shadows, like a lace. This wooden crochet is surrounded by a sheet of transparent aquamarine resin liven up by a constellation of underwater air bubbles that returns a fragment of submerged Venice.
