Murano Glass Christmas Ornaments in for the Holidays!

Our latest shipment of Murano Glass arrived this week, and not a moment too soon. The orders are coming in for Christmas ornaments! Luckily, we still have about 15 left. Murano Glass is enjoying a moment in the spotlight after the recent news of Amal Clooney gifting new husband George Clooney with a set of Murano Glass tumblers in honor of their wedding.

Murano Glass is close to our hearts. Three years ago, Daniele went to visit our glass makers, Maestro Imperio Rossi and his team on the island of Murano, Italy. He got to see the glass being blown and shaped at the furnaces. Here is a view of what goes into making Murano Glass:

While a trip to Murano remains a dream for many of us, we can all have a little piece of Murano by owning an ornament or one of the other beautiful Murano Glass figurines!
