Make a splash with a bright Murano glass pitcher. Instantly recognizable for its bold color and renowned for its quality craftsmanship, this glass is hand blown in Italy by skilled Venetian artisans. Murano glass pieces can be found in the glass and ceramics collections in the National Museum of American History.
The exact technique of the work is called Pastel. After the artist creates a glass ball of the desired color glass, the master passes the glass ball over pieces of colored glass (not transparent), thus giving a harlequin effect.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, Behring Center, is responsible for the collection, care, and preservation of more than three million objects. The glass and ceramics collection contains tens of thousands of fragile artifacts from all over the world.
