The twisted canes of multi colored glass, cased in clear, are called latticino. In the basic design, the colored glass will look like a flat ribbon twirling inside the clear glass, but may also be many thin strips of color which spiral lengthwise.
Lattice, fine threads of specifically lattimo glass in spiral or net patterns
Spiral lines usually of white glass used in stems and on the body of Venetian-style glass. Made as cane which is imbedded in the glass while working.

latticinio (from Italian latte, "milk") A term formerly used to describe filigrana glass. It has now been abandoned.
a swirl or spiral arrangement of many white or colored threads of glass used as a paperweight ground. Lace (see above) is a type of rod, while latticino is a type of pattern.
A Venetian glass-working technique used to create spiraling patterns of colored or clear glass cane on the outside of a piece of glass of opposing color. Glass cane is first heated and fused to the core piece of glass. The core piece can then be blown and twisted to form spiral patterns in the exterior cane.
