This vintage Murano Glass Duck sculpture is a mid-century Venetian art glass masterpiece crafted by famous artist Licio Zanetti. Zanetti is one of the most distinguished names in the world of artistic Murano Glass. Zanetti family is known for generations of talented Murano Glass masters spanning several centuries. In 1956 Oscar Zanetti opened up a company with his son Licio, and Licio Zanetti quickly gained fame for his beautiful and unique pieces, including many animals and birds. The elegant duck sculpture features an exceptional translucency, graceful form, and controlled bubbles throughout its body. These bubbles are crafted using a complicated glass-making process called bullicante, a very difficult technique that Murano masters have perfected, and they lend a touch of sophistication to the design. This elegant Murano bird is a fine reminder of Venice and makes a memorable gift for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary.

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, 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.
