This beautiful Murano Glass Toucan sculpture handmade in one of Murano's famous family workshops will make an exotic and elegant accent in your home or office. Murano Island near Venice is a special place with rich history and deep-rooted culture of craftsmanship, where sons still learn glassmaking the old-fashioned way, working next to their fathers and picking up family secrets of the craft. This Murano Glass Toucan created by talented masters is a fine representation of old European tradition of excellence in decorative arts. The toucan bird sports vibrant colors that seem to flow within each other without mixing, thanks to the masters' expert use of Sommerso glass-making technique. Sommerso is a complicated technique requiring expertise and skill that few masters posses, which helped Murano Glass gain its prestigious status as a modern art form. This fine bird symbolizing the mystery of faraway exotic lands and the wonders that lay beyond the ordinary makes a great gift for any occasion, such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or a career milestone.
  • Measurements: This glass toucan sculpture measures 8 inches in length, 4.5 inches in height, and 2 inches in width.
  • It is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit
  • The toucan is an authentic Murano Glass art piece handcrafted on Murano using only original techniques and traditions. It has the original sticker of the official Murano glass-makers' consortium and is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity.
  • As this Murano Toucan 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.
