These three brightly coloured glass Christmas trees come in three sizes and colours: blue, green and red, the three colours most commonly associated with the holiday.

They are created with the glass fusing technique, and stand as three small exclusive sculptures: a wonderful gift to surprise any recipient.

Use them as a holiday decoration, on a windowsill, table or mantelpiece, or use them as whimsical paperweights: the magic of Christmas and Murano glass meet to create unique and exclusive objects, to amaze and be amazed.

MIXED TECHNIQUES

 

To create these vases, two different types of manufacturing must be combined: glass-blowing and fusion. First, a pattern of glass canes is arranged on a metal plate, which is coated with lagoon-marsh mud -- this is the only substance able to isolate melting glass from metal. The glass is then melted in dedicated ovens before being picked up with the blow-pipe.

 

The initial composition is what determines shape and size of the vase, whether it is composed of canes, geometric slabs, filigree or aventurine, and produces a unique object every time. Once the melted pattern is picked up on the blow-pipe and wrapped around an incandescent blob of glass, it is blown and shaped with tongs to give it a final shape.

 

The vase then undergoes "battitura" (which means "striking"), a finishing process named after the stricken wrought iron look. Actually, what the craftsman does is really grinding the surface into small hollows placed very close together, to create a "fish-scale" pattern. This technique is typically Muranese, and dates back to the 1930's.
