'Scavo' refers to a hot surface decoration technique whereby, during production, the surface of the glass is covered in salts and oxides, and sometimes ash, and then reheated to produce a rough opaque finish to replicate an ancient 'excavated' look. The shapes and colours often mimick Roman or Etruscan glassware, but sometimes this is given a twist with bright modern colours or designs.

23" / 585mm tall floor lamp with patinated bronze mount featuring three abstract male nudes.

These 'scavo' pieces are c.1976-80, as far as I can tell.
