Blown Away: The Magic of Murano

Sommerso, Millefiori, Incalmo, Battuti: if the time-honoured techniques of Murano glassmaking sound like a list of Renaissance poets, it’s because this is an art form versed in centuries of craftsmanship. And these are just a few of the fascinating methods and details that make Murano glass determinedly unique. Dating back to the Roman

era in Venice, glassmaking is to Veneto what papermaking is to Amalfi: its most celebrated and valued of traditions, and one whose legacy continues to be written.

“The techniques the maestros in the furnace developed and still use are just amazing,” says Marie-Rose Kahane, who launched Yali Glass.
