Sea creatures have always mesmerized humans with their beautiful colors, special mystique, and unique looks. The glass artisans of Venice, Italy living on Murano island are closely tied to the sea and have no equals in the craftsmanship of fish and sea animals. This beautiful black fish is made using ancient glass-making techniques, including ice-like crackled appearance, 24 karat gold leaf, and finely detailed features sculpted entirely by hand. It will not only make a great interior design accent in a distinctly contemporary style but will also create a special peaceful aura in your home, alluding to the tranquil days by the seaside. This Murano Glas fish is a wonderful gift for those who love the sea and dream of distant shores.
  • Measurements: The fish sculpture measures 8 inches in width and 7 inches in height.
  • This is an authentic Murano Glass sculpture blown in a family workshop on Murano island, where the glassmaking tradition has flourished for eight hundred years.
  • The Bullicante Fish comes with the sticker of the Murano Glass consortium and the certificate of authenticity.
  • Each fish is unique as each sculpture is made by hand, and the distribution of bubbles, while even, will vary every time. This is not a defect but a feature of the Bullicante glassmaking technique used to create this sculpture.

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.
