Murano Glass Millefiori vases and bowls are made by hand in the factories of Murano Island using a unique time-tested method of infusing small pieces of Millefiori glass canes into the hot glass core of an object, whereby the surface of the art glass object acquires a mosaic look. By picking out the colors and patterns of Millefiori beads to use in each Murano Glass piece, the glass artisans of Murano create thousands of Millefiori vases, bowls, and other art glass pieces, each with its own unique design. Making a Murano Millefiori Vase is hard work involving multiple steps and precise movements between crafting the object at the artisan’s bench and re-heating it many times in the furnace, making each object a valuable and distinctive piece of Murano Glass art.
