Enjoy the impossible cuteness of this Murano Glass Duckling and imagine how it moves with clumsy baby steps as it comes out of the water. A testament to the exceptional skill and rich imagination of Murano Glass artisans, this duckling is handcrafted in a traditional Murano-based workshop by artisans whose family names are featured in world-famous Murano Glass Museum. Using complicated Sommerso glass-making technique, the artisans put colorful layers of glass on top of each other, achieving a look where colors seem to be frozen under translucent glass, meeting and separating but not mixing together. So adorable and unique, this Venetian baby duck sculpture is a great gift to those who enjoy the mastery and artistic heritage of authentic Murano Glass.
Measurements: This Murano Glass Duck sculpture measures about 4-1/2 inches in length and is 3-1/2 inches high and 3 inches deep. Weight is approximately 2 lbs. We provide very secure packaging to avoid damage in transit.

Authenticity: The sculpture is handcrafted by famous Murano Glass masters in their Murano-based workshop. It features the signature of the master, the sticker of the official Murano Glass Consortium, and the certificate of authenticity.

As this sculpture is a unique piece of Murano Glass Art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns as well as random bubbles inside glass are to be expected. 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.
