'Murano Art Glass History'
A bit of history. Just a quick water-taxi ride from Venice, the world-famous island of Murano is home to the centuries-old art of Murano glass. Furnaces line the picturesque walkways of the island. You can watch as the glass makers, in seemingly choreographed rhythm, shape, blow & twirl their incredible creations in the dancing fires of the pulsating, growling ovens. Reflective, dazzling, joyful & dramatic. No two pieces exactly alike.

The art of glass making in Venice is present from the beginning of Venetian history. The art of glass making was pasted down from father to son and then became a trade exclusively for those born in the island of Murano were all the factories were moved to in 1291 as a precaution for a fire hazard. Glass was regarded as an important item of export and the secrets of its making were jealously guarded. A glassmaker, during the Republic, that left the Venetian State was condemned to death as a traitor. The most important discoveries in making glass were made in Murano. The Murano School still remains the most important and inimitable.
