This Murano Glass clown is ready to entertain with a ball in his hand, a broad smile, a bright top hat, and a cute ruff collar. This elegant clown sculpture was created in the famous workshop on Murano Island by the master glassmakers who come from the long lineage of distinguished Murano Glass artisans. The colorful stripes of the clown's outfit along with the red buttons and orange hair create a festive look, which evokes our best childhood memories of the magic and wonders of the circus. This Murano Glass Clown will make a nostalgic and whimsical artistic accent in your home or office and will always remind you of Venice.
  • Measurements: This Murano Glass clown measures 13 inches in height and 7 inches in width in its widest part.
  • The sculpture is very well packaged to ensure safe shipping.
  • There is a Murano sticker, a signature of the glass master on the base, and the clown comes with the certificate of authenticity.
  • As this sculpture is a unique piece of art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns, 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.
