It is hard to take your eyes off this charming Murano Glass Fish in rich shades of red and fine 24 karat gold accents. Finely crafted in the best traditions of Murano glassmaking, this fish is a great example of rare and complex Bullicante glass-making technique, where master artisan introduces evenly distributed bubbles right under the transparent surface of the glass. Thanks to this design of delicate bubbles, carefully crafted details, and the gold leaf sparkling in the light, this Murano Glass fish is a unique creation, which will accentuate any home or office with a touch of Venetian elegance and the tradition of European sophistication.
  • Measurements: The fish sculpture measures 4 inches in width and 4 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.
