Workmanship



To create Millefiori Murano Glass masters first need to cut special millefiori glass canes into tiny pieces, sort those pieces manually by color, and then use them in the glass-making process to achieve the unique Millefiori look of a thousand flowers. To make a Murano Glass pitcher, carafe, or decanter, the master gathers molten glass at the end of a special metal rod, then immerses it into bowls with color-sorted Millefiori pieces, making these pieces stick to the surface. The piece consisting of the layer of molten glass covered with a layer of millefiori beads is then heated up in the furnace, making the two layers fuse and creating the Millefiori pattern on the surface of the art glass object. The object is then re-heated and formed by the master using basic instruments such as pliers and scissors to get the desired pitcher shape.
