Murano glass clowns: a truly exclusive collector's item
The craftsmanship and handmade quality makes them unique and incomparable. Watching one of these clowns being created in the furnace is pure poetry in motion. Clowns are a common character in collective consciousness, a figure that instrinsically brings fun and joy. It is with this spirit that master glassmakers have started producing Murano glass clowns: to create a decorative accessory that would bring good cheer and colour to any home or office setting. They come in different sizes and shapes, each with a distinctive feature. For example, a flower on a hat, a large wig, a ball, a musical instrument, colourful suits and the unmistakeable shoes. Their faces present meticulously details: a wide smile and bright red nose define their character.
Each of these pieces is unrepeatable. By its nature and production technique, Murano glass is unique and exclusive. In other words, no object can ever be identical to any other. This is what sets handmade Murano glass sculptures apart from the rest: mass-production is impossible. They can be similar, but never identical.
However, owning a piece of Murano art glass doesn't only bring beauty to your life. It also means holding an important investment for your future. There are countless creations that are now on display in the world's greatest museums alongside other artistic masterpieces.
Glass clowns, and in general, Murano glass sculptures, represent unique pieces of art, with colors, light, reflections and transparencies that only glass can give.
