Gold Foil or Gold Leaf is used in Murano Glass to create designs that seem to shimmer and glow, which is achieved by infusing very thin pieces of real 24 karat gold foil into the liquid glass. This technique is used in crafting Murano glassware ranging from small beads to large sculptures and vases. In larger pieces, the Venetian glass artisan gathers a big blob of glass at the end of a metal stick, then wraps gold foil around the blob, creating a thin outer layer of pure gold, and then puts the blob into the furnace to ensure that the gold permanently fuses with the glass. In this way masters in Murano Glass factories can create gold Millefiori or Sommerso glassware, adding a touch of pure sunshine to art glass.
