Everyone knows and loves Venice! Whether or not you’ve visited the city before, you’ll know that one of Venice’s many peculiarities is its strong connection with the past and with tradition. During the 1200s, the Republic of Venice’s economic power was growing rapidly, especially thanks to its glassmaking manufactures.

The glassmaking furnaces had at that time just been moved to Murano, partially to avoid fires spreading in the city, but mostly to keep the Glass Masters’ techniques secret, as they were highly sought-after by other European powers. These techniques have remained unchanged for generations and to this day many try to replicate them.

Anyone who has been to Venice wished they could take a piece of this stunning city with them. So why not get an original Murano glass item so as to always carry a small part of the Venetian lagoon with you? Our Glassmaking Artisans are daily inspired by Venice’s scenery and try to incorporate the landscape’s characteristics into their projects.

Just take a look at our Decorative Glass Bowls and Plates! You’ll find many in a variety of shapes that resemble waves, seashells, and sea creatures. Others are decorated with patterns made of the lively and colorful murrine, pearls made of glass fragments, so as to imitate Venice’s vivid architecture.
