The Male Torso statue is authentic Murano Glass artwork painstakingly created by hand using only traditional glass-making methods by a third-generation Murano maestro, whose work is displayed in private collections, galleries and exhibitions worldwide. It features the etched signature of the master, an attached sticker of the official Murano Glass consortium, and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity.
Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors, patterns, and shapes, are possible.
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, abstract art, and animals crafted in well-known Murano factories are top-quality art glass pieces sought after by interior decor specialists and collectors alike.
