Murano glass is stunning with it’s beautiful shapes, rich colors and eye-appealing patterns. Murano glass has been created for over five centires by artisans on the island of Murano, in the Venetian Lagoon. The Murano Glass Masters learned to create amazing immitations of semi and precious stones and minerals popular among the foregin and Venetian Nobility, like malachite, topaz, amethyst.
The evolution of Muano glass making has become an artistic display of glassblowers and glassmaking techniques. As the centuries have passed, Murano Glass has been a discovery of various glass types from a clear glass to Lattimo (milky-white glass) and imitations of sought after minerals. Murano glass can be adorned with enamel, engraving, crackles and filigrees.
Unlike much of the glass beads today, Murano Glass pieces are never colored once they are made. All of the decorating and color occurs during the glassmaking process, making it long-lasting and durable with colors that resist fading and changing.
For it’s artistic appeal and durability Murano Glass has been sough after by the wealthy and elite for centuries.
