The origins of murrina glass processing
The murrina technique is very ancient: it draws its origins from the very first glass processing in Murano in the early 1900s. & nbsp;
This is an extremely complex process, and therefore rare, handed down from father to son for hundreds of years. It can still be rightly counted as the only one in the world, which has always been imitated without real success; the only methodology to appeal to in order to give life to these fine and refined artistic and chromatic masterpieces.
The & nbsp; millefiori vases are very much appreciated, especially recently, creations of this precious and unique process, the result of steps and secrets of realization that have been going on for hundreds of years.

The glass masters to whom we owe the credit for conceiving these works of art, including the & nbsp; millefiori vases , hold the tools and quickly move away from each other. other, shaking the reeds in a manner proven for centuries. & nbsp;
Then, they quickly place the still hot glass barrel on very thin wooden sleepers (arranged on structures located in very long corridors) waiting for them to cool down. & nbsp;
The murrina, thus obtained in this first step, once cooled, is cut. & nbsp;
It is from this moment on that one begins to appreciate the chromatic beauty that characterizes the millefiori vases and, more generally, all the works produced with the & nbsp; murrina technique. & nbsp;
Once the wand has been cooled and cut, it will show the sections with the motifs of the processing in different colors.
In case you want to recreate a more complex decoration, which takes place precisely for the realization of the millefiori vases, special machinery and molds with particular vertical convexities are used, such as to model the glassy fluid inserted inside giving life to other forms, such as, in this case, flowers. The latter are the real protagonists of the enchanting & nbsp; millefiori vases. & Nbsp;
These little flowers are placed very close to each other, so as not to leave spaces, so as to create that enchanting background that evokes the embroidered canvases of the past, those that our grandmothers used to make by hand with lots of cottons colored. & nbsp;
A chromatic effect of incomparable beauty that reaches its peak with the final step of the marbling, which evens out everything with ineffable precision. & nbsp;
