Handmade crystal vase.
Murano Crystal is known worldwide for its artistic value, incomparable beauty, and cultural and artistic heritage of Venice, Italy.
Murano crystal is a handcrafted technique, going through several heating processes and only after heating can it be modelled by a true master craftsman of the Murano glass art. That is why it can never be made industrially in series. Today Murano crystals are a trend in the décor world, bringing beauty, life, and sophistication to the environment.
This piece features 24k gold, creating the rich and sophisticated look of shimmering gold multiplied by reflections from the Murano crystal. To infuse gold into the object, the master craftsman rolls up small sheets of 24k gold during the initial Murano blowing phase, and then the gold leaf covers most of the Murano. Once the master starts blowing, the gold leaf splits into small pieces. This technique results in objects with pieces of gold captured within the item.
