The romance of Venice is undeniable. Venice is the most popular destination for couples from near and far, who come to experience the magic appeal of this city and leave with some of their most treasured memories. Murano Glass masters have embodied those feelings of love and memory in this elegant statue. Two lovers, the male in gorgeous ruby-red glass and the female in rich orange, hold each other tenderly while standing on a perfectly clear glass ball, the different colored glass of their feet melted together to symbolize the lasting nature of love and the importance of a common foundation. This Murano Glass Lovers figurine is a perfect token of Murano's famous traditional art and a wonderful gift for weddings, anniversaries, or engagements.

Workmanship



Lampworking technique of glass-making, which dates back to ancient Egypt, was revived by Murano glass artisans around the fourteenth century. This technique is based on heating up a blob of glass under a small flame from a lamp or a torch until it reaches malleable state, then blowing and using simple tools or just hands to create various forms and designs. Lampworking allows the artisan's creativity to blossom, as copper sparkles, various minerals, and pieces of glass cane are fused together in this process to create rich colors and imaginative patterns that are always unique. Murano Glass masters often use lampworking method to create small jewelry, such as pendants, earrings, or rings, as well as keychains, barrettes, pillboxes, and figurines.
