The process of creating unique items from Murano glass has survived for centuries in its traditional form and the secrets of the glassblower’s art are passed down from generation to generation. The name comes from the Murano group of islands in the Venetian lagoon, to which all the glass-making workshops were moved in the late 13th century. Each item is hand-made by craftspeople using the traditional glass-blowing methods. The elegance and uniqueness of Murano glass comes from the use of various decorative techniques. The color palette and style of all the items in our collection reflect the artistic manner of the artists whose masterpieces you can see in the Hermitage.
