This playful Murano Glass Dolphin was created in a traditional workshop on Murano island using the sought-after gold leaf technique where 24K gold leaf is infused into cristallo glass under high temperatures in special glass-making furnaces. This results in beautiful sparkling appearance of 24K gold dust captured inside translucent glass body of the dolphin. This elegant dolphin sculpture will make a rich artistic accent in your home or office and will instantly carry you away into the beauty and magic Venice, itself exquisite and elegant creature of the sea.

Measurements: The dolphin sculpture is about 7 inches long, 6 inches high and 3 inches deep. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit. Authenticity: This dolphin is 100% authentic Murano Glass sculpture, created by artisans on Murano island. It is signed by the artist and features the original sticker of the official Murano glass-makers' consortium. It is also accompanied by the certificate of authenticity.
As this Murano Dolphin is a unique artistic sculpture made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible. These do not constitute a defect but rather are the very features by which experts recognize authentic Murano Glass.

Workmanship



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.
