In 1984, Zynsky was invited to the famous Venini glassworks on Murano. While she was there, she reconsidered her early, thread-wrapped blown vessels. The result was the unusual Folto vases that she designed for Venini. Unlike her fused thread vessels, blowing a form and wrapping it with threads was fairly simple for the factory glassblowers, and it was easily reproducible, so that many pieces could be made quickly. These two vases [2010.3.122 and 2010.3.136] show Zynsky’s characteristic contrasting colors. The rims are folded during the glassblowing process so that they are hollow. This type of hollow interior fold was often made in the 1970s by students at the Rhode Island School of Design, where it was called the “RISD Ring.” The title Folto (Thicket) was given to Zynsky’s design by the Venini glassworks. Her original name for the design was Chiacchierra, which in Venetian dialect is a reference to someone making the head spin. Subsequently, Zynsky changed the name to Mulinello, meaning a whirlpool or a whirlwind. But Venini’s name, Folto, was the final one.
