Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries.
Murano’s glassmakers developed and refinined many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass.
Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers!!
I am a collector and lover of glass and when I spot an interesting piece of Murano it is sure hard to resist. This charming Murano Vase is beyond stunning.
