Murano glass dish 18 – Dish with the Murano technique.
Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries.
Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass.
Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything contemporary art glass.
Special tools are essential for Murano artisans to make their glass. Some of these tools include borselle (tongs or pliers used to hand-form the red-hot glass), canna da soffio (blowing pipe), pontello (an iron rod to which the craftsman attaches the object after blowing in order to add final touches), scagno (the glass-master’s workbench) and tagianti (large glass-cutting clippers). The tools for glass-blowing have changed little over the centuries and remain simple. An old Murano saying goes “Good tools are nice, but good hands are better,” reinforcing the artistic nature of the glass-making process, which relies on the skill of the worker rather than the use of special tools.
