It requires a special glassblowing process that is over 1000 years old. Rediscovered by local artisans who found the remains of ancient Roman glassware at the end of the first millennium, they continuously developed and enhanced the technique which has been relied upon ever since.
When making the glass they mix it with other minerals which gives it its funky colors and vibrant designs. The resulting liquid glass mixture is then mouth-blown and then handcrafted by master glassmakers in a series of elaborate steps.
They used tools to mold, shape and polish the glass to create unique and beautiful designs. For this reason, high-end Murano Glass is called art glass. Murano Art Glass, located in Murano Island, the heart of Venice, it was created with the ambition to offer a choice of the best artistic production made in Murano and to become an essential showcase for the art of glass.
The history of glassmaking in Murano dates back to 1291 when the Venetian government ordered the glassmakers of Venice to relocate to Murano as a precautionary measure to avert a huge fire. From there on, the small island emerged as one of the most prominent centers of glassmaking in the world. Today, you can still catch a firsthand glimpse of artisans handcrafting glass in a number of foundries in Murano. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Decorative Pottery & Glassware\Vases".
