Tuffo means "plunge" in Italian. Molten hot glass lampshades at 2100°F are plunged into cold water during the glassblowing process creating crackles in the glass. The crackles are then melted back together with the heat. This blown glass crackle technique with a metallic overlay creates a water-like pattern on the surrounding walls. The underlying crackles and irregular edges make this lamp very organic and elegant.
