Ovale Vase White

$ 3,000

A hand-crafted and blown Murano Glass vase. Colored glass or gold-leaf is incorporated between two generous layers of clear glass creating the thick walls of this vase. This layering of glass gives the illusion of a vase floating within a vase. The vase is raised on two feet divided by an arch channel.

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.
