This gorgeous decorative bowl is handcrafted by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice using the techniques and traditions passed down to them through generations. This unique look is achieved using famous and very complicated Millefiori technique of glass-making where hundreds of small mosaic glass pieces are picked out by hand, then used to wrap a glass shape and fused together in hot furnaces. The artistic design of the dish with its gentle folds and curves is a play on the "fazzoletto" (handkerchief) look where shape of the glass imitates the handkerchief folds, showing amazing mastery of the artisan. This beautiful piece is very versatile - it can be used as an ashtray, or as a fine decorative piece on your coffee table, as candy dish, or as on your bed-stand or dresser to hold your favorite jewelry. This unique Murano bowl makes a wonderful gift of Venetian style and Murano craftsmanship to those who appreciate Old-World European elegance. Measurements:The ashtray measures 3 3/4 inches on each side. The round base is 2 inches in diameter. It comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.
It all starts with cutting special Millefiori canes into small pieces and carefully sorting them by hand inside a Murano Glass factory in Venice, Italy. The next step is dipping a ball of hot glass into the bowls of Millefiori pieces of appropriate colors to create a unique design and pattern. Then the master holds the glass inside a hot furnace until the Millefiori beads get completely infused into the surface of the future glass object. Next, the master shapes up the object turning it into a Murano Glass bowl, centerpiece or a plate using only very simple instruments to stretch and form the glass, creating waves and folds in its surface so real that they seem to be moving. Going back and forth between the furnace and the bench, heating, blowing, shaping, twisting each piece, artisans create Murano Glass Millefiori centerpieces, vases, bowls, ashtrays and decorative plates based on decades of experience in their factories and workshops on Murano island.
