Our Cane Decanter Process
This weekend we made decanters using our own hand-pulled zanfirico cane. The video above shows our process for creating our cane decanters. The canes are rolled up, gathered over, and then blown and shaped to create a refined form. These zanfirico cane decanters are especially lovely when used to serve red wine or other dark colored beverages. The cane work of the piece is enhanced when liquid is added.
Prior to this video, we pulled our own zanfirico canes (shown in the photo above). These canes are created using a multi-step process in which a bundle of canes are put together, heated, and then simultaneously pulled and twisted to create a dynamic pattern.
