Murano Glass drinking glasses, tumblers, and shot glasses made in Millefiori technique showcase the mastery of the local Murano artisans. Millefiori glass technique has ancient roots but Venetian masters perfected it and turned it into an art form. The artisan crafts each drinking glass from a shapeless blob of heated glass that is dipped into Millefiori glass pieces of various colors and designs, heated up in the furnace, then blown and shaped by the artisan using basic tools. In a multistep blowing, shaping, and re-heating process the glass takes on the color and design the master intended and the elegant Murano Glass tumbler or shot glass comes out of the shapeless glass as if by magic.
