It all starts with cutting special Millefiori canes into small pieces and carefully sorting them by hand inside a Murano Glass factory in Venice, Italy. The next step is dipping a ball of hot glass into the bowls of Millefiori pieces of appropriate colors to create a unique design and pattern. Then the master holds the glass inside a hot furnace until the Millefiori beads get completely infused into the surface of the future glass object. Next, the master shapes up the object turning it into a Murano Glass bowl, centerpiece or a plate using only very simple instruments to stretch and form the glass, creating waves and folds in its surface so real that they seem to be moving. Going back and forth between the furnace and the bench, heating, blowing, shaping, twisting each piece, artisans create Murano Glass Millefiori centerpieces, vases, bowls, ashtrays and decorative plates based on decades of experience in their factories and workshops on Murano island.
