A lovely accent to any interior decor, this adorable Murano Glass Elephant instantly creates cheerful and light ambiance. With its whimsical design and rich colors evoking bright Venetian morning, this Sommerso Elephant was handcrafted in the workshop of famous Murano Glass masters, whose families have been making artistic glass creations for generations. Sommerso technique is an elaborate and unique process of glass-blowing invented and perfected by Murano's master glass-makers. It requires unmatched skill and experience, to allow the masters to carefully superimpose multiple layers of colorful glass without mixing them up. The wonderful palette of purple, rose, and blue colors playing off each other within translucent glass elicits cheerful memories of Venice where the sky, water, sun and architecture make unique chromatic effects and create dreamy impressions. This fine Murano Elephant is a great piece for your home and a wonderful gift for any occasion.

  • Measurements: This glass elephant sculpture measures 6-1/2 inches in height. It is 4 inches wide and 3 inches deep.

  • Authenticity: The elephant sculpture is signed by the artist and features the original sticker of the official Murano glass-makers' consortium. It is also accompanied by the certificate of authenticity in Italian and English.
  • As this Murano Elephant is a unique artistic sculpture made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns, as well as random bubbles inside are possible. These do not constitute a defect but rather are the very features by which experts 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.
