This wonderfully detailed colorful Murano Glass Clown comes straight from the kilns of Murano Island's best artisans who have been creating fine art glass for generations. With its colorful Millefiori outfit, accented by oversized red buttons, large green collar, and black top hat, messy hair and a huge smile, this Venetian clown evokes the magic of circus and the precious childhood memories that stay with us forever.

Clown figures have been created on Murano Island for over a century and are sought out by Murano Art Glass fans and collectors worldwide. It is easy to see why - the elaborate forms and the rainbow of colors showcase the mastery and talent of Murano glass artists and artisans like few other pieces can.

  • Measurements: This clown measures 7 1/2 inches in height and 3 1/2 inches in width in its widest part.
  • It is very well packaged to avoid damage during shipping.
  • The clown comes with the original Murano Glass sticker and the certificate of authenticity. It is signed by the master glassmaker on the bottom.
  • Since this Murano Clown sculpture is a unique piece of art made entirely by hand, small variations of colors and shapes, as well as random bubbles inside the glass are possible. These are not defects but the very signs by which you can recognize authentic Murano Glass.

Workmanship



Larger Murano Glass figures and sculptures are typically made in the ancient factories on Murano island, where there is enough space to turn, twist, and blow the glass, move it into and out of the large furnaces, and cool it down properly. Making the glass mixture with the right color intensity and pattern is only a part of the job. The biggest challenge is shaping the glass just perfectly while keeping it in the correct state in between the bench and the furnace. This requires special skills rarely found outside of Murano Glass artist and artisan community. These Murano Glass sculptures of lovers, Venetian ladies and gentlemen, clowns, abstract art, animals and birds crafted in well-known Murano factories are top-quality art glass pieces sought after by interior decor specialists and collectors alike.
