Murano Style Favors
Inspired by the artisans of Murano
The beautiful island of Murano is located off the nothern coast of Italy, adjacent to Venice. Although the art of hand blown glass originated in Venice, during the late 13th century, the Venetian Republic ordered all of the glass artisans to relocate to the island of Murano. This was done to protect the wooden structures in Venice as glass blowing posed a fire hazard. Soon thereafter, Murano became known for their glassworks. Such craftsmanship includes 'Murano Aventurine Glass' which has threads of gold within the glass and 'Murano Mileiori Glass' which is multicolored. They are also known for developing and/or refining the techniques used to craft crystalline glass, enameled glass, milk glass and faux gemstones made of glass. We have come to associate all of these beautiful glass classifications as 'Murano Glass'.
We are excited to introduce our newest line of favors inspired by the artisans of Murano, Italy. The intricate way the hand blown glass colors intertwine within the glass transforms what is usually a common favor into a veritable original work of art. No two are identical and color variations are just what makes these Murano Style Wedding Favors so unique. Please note that these 'replicas' do not come from Murano, Italy.., yet each piece of glass is hand blown using many of the same methods of the original Murano artisans.
