A very old technique of glass design (Eisblumieren) finds its application here: the chipping of the glass surface with the help of animal glue, thusly creating facets on the surface of the glass. While in former times it was used to produce ice crystal patterns on glass panes, Nabo restricts the technique to a specific area, therefore magically creating colorless figures which possess great radiance.
Light breaks on the fractured surfaces, reflecting it, sparkling like a diamond.
