the glass foundry

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Our foundry is the beating heart of our company. The place where amid the intense heat and centuries old walls and tools our Masters create their masterpieces. We strongly believe that in order to infuse our thousand years old tradition in our pieces we have to live and breathe in the same places where this tradition was born and progressed through the centuries. These walls are saturated with history, passion, art and the daily struggle of our men to transform raw elements into glimmering pieces of art through a constant struggle with fire, danger and heat.
That’s why Murano Chandeliers like ours or any other Murano Glass piece can only be made in Murano, here at the heart of the Venice Lagoon, where it all started and where still we hold the secrets of our ancestors.
