Murano Glass
Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers, as well as tourist souvenirs.
Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture. The Museo del Vetro (Glass Museum) in the Palazzo Giustinian houses displays on the history of glassmaking as well as glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features a magnificently detailed winter scene. In a small town nestled among the mountains and snow-covered evergreens, hearts and hearths are warmed by a festive feeling; while residents come together indoors to celebrate, others yet settle into their warm beds for a restful sleep. In the starry night sky above, the town’s amber lights cast a glow as beautifully engraved crystalline snowflakes gently fall to the ground. In the centre of the reverse lies the focus of the design: a stunning glass angel flying high on large white wings, resplendent with a vibrantly coloured blue robe and golden halo. Watching over the sleepy town, this angel presence infuses the scene with a peaceful, tranquil feeling that stirs the imagination with its message of peace, comfort and joy.
