A hand-crafted and blown Murano glass tall vase. This vase with its whimsical look is created by utilizing the ancient technique of "Rostri". This desired effect is created by wrapping the vase body with a thick band of glass that is poked and pinched before the vase cools.
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), golden glass (goldstone), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass.
Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques and is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects.
