Murano Glass Vases:

Authentic Made in Italy

Why Venini is the most important manufacturer of Murano blown glass in the world? It is the only brand that became famous and has attracted the attention of many artists, designers, collectors and connoisseurs of unique objects.

Murano glass, unique in beauty and quality, is associated with the island of Murano in sunny Italy that is often called the “second Venice” where it is produced. The first Venetian glassmakers started creating their masterpieces about a thousand years ago.

Their activity vanished and then flourished again, but today the products of the masters of the island of Murano are deservedly appreciated.

Murano Glass from Venice

Murano glass is an exclusive hand-made mouth-blown glass processing technology with a thousand-year history that appeared in Italy at the turn of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

It happened thanks to Venice’s close ties with the eastern countries from which the first samples of glass artifacts and the main technologies for glass processing and coloring came.

Venetian glass quickly gained immense popularity and love in medieval Europe thanks to the competent policy of the authorities and the work of the first Venetian glassmakers who began to acquire importance and social status.

The secrets of craftsmanship began to accumulate and be kept in the family shops and handed down from father to son for tens of generations.

Glassmakers had many privileges. Noble and wealthy families considered it an honor to marry the family of the Master glassmaker.

    The Venini Yemen Vase was designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1994, the Italian-Austrian artist whose storied career touched everything from furniture to typewriters.

    Sottsass sought inspiration during his numerous travels around the world. The photos would be of architecture, houses, doors, people and situations involving dwellings and, in more general terms, the presence of humans on the planet which he then transposed into his works of art.

    The Venini hand blow glass vase with its different geometric shapes, circular shaped body and triangular neck and base reflect one in the other, like magical memories of distant lands. In “Yemen” vase, emotion takes precedence over function. Sottsass’s glass masterpieces are always complex organisms, designed as if they were characters. The artist-architect shatters the technical boundaries of the objects using different materials, in this case glass, bringing them to life. They are beings made of many elements that create a lively yet imaginary world emphasized by quirky colours and childlike forms.

    The technique used is Opal overlapping transparent coral red, milk-white, black and light green colours to the Milk-white one. Perfect for indoor home decor as container or strong statement piece.

The secret of Murano Glass Making

The Venetian kings as well as the glassmakers themselves contributed to keeping the secret and not spreading it not only outside the Italian borders but also outside Venice.

Many decisive and characteristic measures of the time were taken to ensure the highest level of safety.

Without exception, all the furnaces and workshops were moved to the island of Murano located in the Venice lagoon.

It was done to prevent the city from causing fires related to the technological process of glass production.

Since then, Italians and Europeans in general began to call Venetian glass a Murano glass.

    Venini occupies a very special and unique place in the world of twentieth century Italian glass. Founded in 1921 by Paolo Venini, a lawyer from Milan passionate about glass, Venini created an unrivaled expression of modernism in glass which the company has maintained throughout its eighty years of existence.
    From the very beginning Venini engaged artists and architects, both Italian and foreign, to develop its products: Paolo Martinuzzi, Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti in the thirties and forties, Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Jamie Carpenter and Toots Zynsky in the sixties and seventies; Mario Bellini, Alessandro Mendini and Ettore Sottsass in the eighties and nineties to mention a few.
    Although Venini was sold out of the family in 1985, the company has steadfastly maintained its visionary outlook through the sensitive direction of Roberto Gasparotto, who joined the firm in 1992. The current owner Giancarlo Chimento has opened the door to a larger international group of artist and designers.

The Opalino vase is an absolute classic by Venini.

The uniqueness of the vase lies in the exquisite color of the glass, which lights up differently depending on the time of day.

This effect is created through the use of the traditional Opalino technique.

The method was first used in the 15th century to make glass that resembles porcelain. Furthermore, this type of glass took a name lattimo.

    The “Labuan” vases from Venini are produced using the so-called “overlay technique”. The overlay technique is one of the oldest techniques in glass production. This wonderful glass process demands a high level of expertise on the part of the glass blower.
    What makes Venini glass so special are the many colours with which the Venetian glass manufacturer produces its high-quality Murano glass. Achieving the superior colouring of Murano glass demands the utmost precision of the Venini glass blowers as they put together the various constituents. The traditional glass-blowing technique used by the employees of Venini to manufacture each piece is a craft that very few artisans still master.

Time has passed, people also have changed like the Venetian glass of the island of Murano.

The artisans continuously study new technologies, try to carry out various experiments, but the traditions of manufacturing glass products continue to exist without any changes.

The traditions of making elegant creations and unique handmade decorative items are still alive today.

Hourglass or Clessidra is an exceptional creation designed by Paolo Venini in 1957.

Two equal parts blown separately in different colors compose the vase and then are joined together through the use of the ancient incalmo technique. In this way the glassmakers obtain a unique and graceful composition.
