Filigrana

The Filigrana style originated in Murano in the 16th Century. It is created by heating a series of transparent glass rods which contain a coloured thread or ribbon-like decoration. The rods are joined together and moulded into the desired shape. It is a complex process requiring great skill and precision on the part of the maestro. The delicate filigrana pattern adds a lightness and beguiling beauty to the glass.
