Murano Glass vases, figurines, tumblers, and tableware often feature a unique look, where base layer of glass is decorated with colorful flowers, leaves, abstract glass streaks, or in other ways by applying stretched out dripping glass in various colors and shapes on top of a blown glass core. This technique requires precision, talent, and many years of experience working with Murano Glass. Murano Glass has unique characteristics which, when heated up, make it stretch and flow easily, and quickly cool off to form the desired pattern. Murano Glass masters in Venice often use this technique to create abstract Venetian glassware such as Picasso-style heads, vases, or sculptures, and other modern-art creations.
