We are always in search of exciting new product lines to offer our customers and are proud to announce that AllSculptures.com now carries gorgeous Murano Glass. This exquisite glassware is hand-blown in Murano, Italy, which is home to some of the world’s most incredibly talented glass artisans. The line includes a variety of pieces including sculptures of course, but also fine decor pieces such as vases, centerpiece bowls, and decorative bottles. The craftsmanship is truly something to behold!
Murano Glass comes in a dazzling array of colors, including the amazing and difficult to achieve Calcedonia glass, for which the technique was developed in the mid-fifteenth century but temporarily lost during the fall of the Venetian Republic. Thankfully, the painstaking process was rediscovered; it involves adding silver nitrate to produce unique colored striations within the glass. The chemical reaction, which cannot be entirely artistically controlled, results in a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art. We are including some examples of Calcedonia glass for you to see in this post, but we also invite you to visit the AllSculptures.com Murano Glass page to view the whole collection which includes many other styles and colors! Each piece is brand new, first quality, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
