Divided into nine islets and crossed by a large canal, Murano is known as the Island of Blown Glass: a tradition as ancient as it is current, which has seen entire generations of glassmakers involved in this fascinating process.
Venice in fact is also recognized worldwide to be The Capital of Glass, home of the most extraordinary works of art often displayed in luxurious palaces and art exhibitions.
As you may imagine, Venetian culture becomes a big source of inspiration for Murano’s artisans and designers who, working every day in ancient and traditional factories, bring to life spectacular glass creations.
However, Venice is also known all over the world for its Carnival, a one-of-a-kind event that has been held since the eleventh century and became extremely popular in the eighteenth century thanks to the aristocracy’s liking.
Even today, locals but also visitors, love to dress up in authentic Venetian costumes and take on different personas through a mask.
Masks are in fact the most famous symbol of this tradition. They represent the ability to transform into different characters which is the main objective of this kind of event; hiding your true identity while being someone else for ten days.
Our Glassmakers took on this concept and combined it with Murano’s glass-processing tradition.
This is how the most beautiful Venetian Glass Masks are created. Available at Yourmurano, these items are decorative works of art realized through a multicolored glass rod process which makes them colorful and original.
Our Glass Masks feature a simple and elegant design consisting of parallel vertical lines that resembles Venice’s Carnival costumes shades.
They are beautiful and symbolize a piece of our city’s unique culture, so what about taking home a piece of Venice? It will remind you of the great time you had here.
