This gorgeous blown Murano glass horse sculpture represents the long-running artistic tradition of Murano glass combined with ingenuity and technical virtuosity of Murano glass masters. Using the most famous and distinctive ancient Murano glass technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers), Murano masters created this elegant horse sculpture with the body of vivid stylized flowers and the long beautiful mane and other details in rich ruby red glass for a striking artistic effect.
This beautiful authentic Murano glass horse was painstakingly created by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed at exhibitions and in museums worldwide. It will make a stylish addition to your home or office and will bring a touch of Venetian sophistication into your life. This graceful Murano horse sculpture also makes a uniquely appropriate luxurious gift to the special people in your life, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

The horse is approximately 8 inches tall and 7 inches long. This Murano glass masterpiece is signed by the master. Attached sticker further proves its Murano origin, as does the certificate of authenticity that comes with the horse.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of sizes, colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



Murano Glass Millefiori is a unique glass-making technique, which results in bright mosaic-like multicolor appearance of the glass. Millefiori vases, bowls, figurines, ornaments, tableware and drinking glasses are crafted by hand in Murano Glass factories using Murano masters' original method that has changed little over the centuries. To achieve the look of Millefiori glass, the master artisans of Murano use special locally-made Millefiori glass canes, which are then hand-cut into small disc-shaped pieces and sorted by color in separate bowls. Next, the master heats up a blob of transparent or colored glass and dips it into the bowls with Millefiori pieces to achieve a specific design and color pattern. The Millefiori beads immediately stick to the hot surface of the glass, and once the intended design is formed, the glassmakers puts the glass blob back into the furnace to make the Millefiori pieces on the surface fully fuse with the base glass layer to form a single surface. Afterwards, the glass artisan goes to his special bench, where he blows, forms, and shapes the glass with pliers and scissors to make the intended object, be it a Murano Glass vase, bowl, Christmas ornament, or a sculpture. The resulting piece is an art glass object that is unique and beautiful.
