Murano glass Story
Since medieval times, Murano (a cluster of islands near Venice, Italy), has been famous world-wide for
artisanal glass created by skilled Italian glassblowers. This well-guarded craft has been handed down from
generation to generation.
Murano bead-making begins by using Murrine (colored glass canes) composed of silica mixed with other
elements. The production of these colored canes is challenging, because the process involved in color
fabrication is extremely sensitive and must be done with total accuracy.
Most Murano glass art is made by using the complex lampworking technique. This method, involves
heating the glass at a high temperature with a torch until it becomes liquid. Before the liquid glass cools
and completely solidifies, the delicate process of shaping begins. The Murano glass-master employs his
skills as an artist/sculptor by wrapping the material around a metal rod until the ideal bead shape is
achieved. Several layers of different colored glass as well as gold and silver leaf are often used to produce
the desired effect. After the bead is slowly cooled, it is removed from the rod which produces a hole for
eventual stringing. The end results are extraordinary glass beads decorated with swirls, stripes, flowers,
polka dots, etc.
