This Murano Glass Toucan is so cute you'll adore it from the moment you first see it! With its charming long ears, cute face, and elegant posture this toucan in rich shades of topaz and amber and shimmering 24 karat gold leaf will instantly capture your heart. Handmade by Murano island's best artisans who have been turning hot glass mixture into art for generations, this fine sculpture has a design of evenly distributed bubbles, which make it a truly unique and rare piece. To create this bubbly effect inside the transparent glass, the master artisan follows a complex method called Bullicante made famous in the 1930's by famous Murano Glass artist Archimede Seguso. Thanks to these unique features, this charming Venetian toucan sculpture is a perfect accent for your home or office, and a wonderful gift for anyone who loves birds and values fine European craftsmanship.
  • Measurements: The toucan sculpture measures approximately 6 inches in width and 4 inches in height.
  • This is an authentic Murano Glass sculpture crafted by hand in a family workshop on Murano island, where glass-blowing has flourished for eight hundred years.
  • The Bullicante Toucan comes with the sticker of the Murano Glass consortium and the certificate of authenticity.
  • Each toucan sculpture is unique as it is made entirely by hand, and the exact distribution of bubbles will vary. This is not a defect but a feature of Murano's special 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.
