New Murano Glass Treasures

Last week I spent a lot of time putting together the information about seven new Murano glass pieces by maestro Imperio Rossi. Needless to say, all pieces are authentic Imperio Rossi creations that bear his signature and the Vetro Artistico Murano tamper-proof sticker that features the number that identifies his furnace: 033.

The pieces added vary from vases to tumblers and feature a few different styles. I am always in awe when I work next to one of these murano glass creations: I end up admiring all the details.

The SBRUFFO product line features a layer of colored glass brushed (for lack of better words) on top of the item. The technique creates a multidimensional and multicolor effect that is very pleasing to the touch and eye.

The Murrine Millefiori product line features products that maestro Imperio Rossi designs in the evening and lays out before starting work for the day.

The Fusione product line features a mix of hand blown murrina cores with sculpted colored glass to create various objects. We carry three animal figurines that are absolutely adorable. Two of these, the elephant and the fish, just got added last week.
