This gorgeous Murano Glass Owl is the very expression of the artistic genius of the island's glass masters, a creature that is as mysterious, beautiful, and colorful as Venice itself. Featuring amazing waves of rich nature-inspired brown and amber colors along with mineral-like iridescent overtones, this owl was carefully crafted by hand in one of Murano's most famous workshops, using only the original methods of Murano glass-making. Authentic and unique, this owl will be an instant highlight in your home or office, creating the atmosphere of Venetian stateliness, elegance, and splendor. With its fine design of perfectly sculpted features and colors that seem to be flowing like Venetian waters, and its traditional meaning as a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, this owl is a wonderful gift for birthdays, anniversaries, career advancement, retirement, father's day, and other momentous occasions.

Measurements: This Murano Glass Owl sculpture measures 10-11 inches in height and 6 inches in width. Weight is ~13 lb. The owl is blown (hollow inside) but is still very substantial and heavy. It comes very well packaged to avoid damage in transit.

Authenticity: The sculpture is handcrafted by famous Murano masters whose works are featured in museums and art galleries worldwide. 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.
