Murano Glass Techniques

 

Murrina Glass Technique

The manufacture of Murrina Glass is the most labour intensive and longest of the three techniques used by the Venetian glass artisans; Murrina rods are cut in to small pieces which are called millefiori beads and then each tiny piece is individually placed into a copper frame, like a mosaic. When the frame is complete it is placed in an oven overnight to melt and thicken. The final stage is for the glass to be ground and polished, all done by hand to create individual, unique pieces of Murano jewellery

Glass Sheet Technique

The manufacture of the glass sheet is the most modern of the artisan techniques; First a slab of Murano glass is laid out and various loose materials are scattered over it such as gold and silver foils and small pieces of coloured glass.
A second slab of Murano Glass of a different colour, is then placed on top like a sandwich, and then it is baked overnight in an oven.
The glass will be then ready to be cut in different moulds and objects exclusively handmade individually unique.

Lampwork Technique

Lampwork is the oldest of the Murano techniques, it is the melting together of different types of glass creating individual patterns and colour combinations.
To be able to work the glass, the master glass-maker uses a gas flame that reaches very high temperatures.
The artisan uses a glass rod and melts together different materials, such as Murrina glass, gold, silver and other precious materials.
