Murano Glass masters are famous around the world for their virtuosity in turning glass into amazing art. Using just a few simple tools and basic furnaces in the tradition that goes centuries back, Murano artisans create fine pieces that capture the essence of Venice. This gorgeous Murano Glass Vase is an example of "fazzoletto" design (handkerchief in Italian). Using unique qualities of molten Murano Glass, the artist shapes the edges of the vase into smooth handkerchief-like folds, showcasing versatility, beauty, and artistry that cannot be found in glassware outside of Venice. The unique vision of the artist is completed with the threads of many rich colors, that wrap around the entire vase. The wavy, almost fluid form of the vase creates special elegance and makes this heavy piece seem weightless. Enjoy this beautiful piece of Venetian Glass Art in your home, or make it a very special gift for a momentous occasion.
  • Measurements: This Murano art glass vase measures about 12 inches in height. It is about 13 inches in width in its widest part at the top.
  • The vase is very well packaged to avoid damage in transit and comes with the sticker of Murano's official Glass-makers' Consortium and the certificate of authenticity.
  • The vase is a unique piece of art made by hand, hence some variations of colors and patterns as well as random bubbles inside glass are possible and serve as additional assurance of the authenticity of this Murano Glass Venetian vase.

Workmanship



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.
