This delightful Murano Glass Penguin sculpture will instantly add cheer and beauty to your surroundings. Handcrafted by Murano's top artisans using complex Sommerso glass-making technique, this penguin is more than a delectable decor piece, it is a work of art continuing a thousand-year-old tradition of Venetian glassmaking. The artisans' unique skill in fine craftsmanship is matched by their artistic imagination, resulting in the mesmerizing play of deep blue and green colors flowing within cristallo glass of the penguin's body. This cute Murano bird hailing from the gorgeous landscapes of the Antarctic makes a great gift for any joyous occasion.

Measurements: This glass penguin sculpture measures 6 inches in height, it is 4 inches wide and 3-1/2 inches deep. It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit
Authenticity: The penguin 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.
As this Murano Penguin 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.
