Lampworking technique is an ancient method of glass-making where the master artisan uses a small flame to heat up glass canes, and then turns these glass canes constantly to blow and shape the glass object under the fire to give it the desired shape and design. Using various design touches such as colored borders, ribbed surfaces, decorative flowers the artisan creates Murano Glass candle holders, drinking glasses, wine glasses and other tableware and stemware that is elaborate, translucent and lightweight.
