So, what’s so special about Murano Glass sculptures? What makes them so fascinating is how they are made. Murano glass is named after the little island where it is made, which is part of a network of tiny islands in the Venice lagoon. Murano glass blowing is an art taught from generation to generation since the 13th century and it is still done with the same techniques and tools used then. Murano glass is a perfect example of the great quality of the Made in Italy. This premium hand-crafted good is part of the Italian heritage and is protected by a trademark that certifies that it was made in Murano at a furnace that follows the traditional glass blowing process.
Murano glass sculptures are not mass-produced but hand-made one by one, so every piece is slightly different from another, carrying the creativity of its glass master. Each sculpture has a different story and is a one-of-a-kind unique piece, whether that being in the design, colors, or contour, there won’t be any sculpture in the world like yours. Murano glass sculptures are famous for their elegant shapes and beautiful colors. Masters achieve rich colors by adding different minerals into the mix. It’s common to add gold and silver specks into the glass, making the piece even more luxurious. This gives any object a glowing effect, as the specks reflect the light and can bright up the room.

Your sister who never misses an art exhibition will definitely be amazed by the craftsmanship of the sculpture.
