Technique

Murrine

This is one of the most ancient techniques and dates back to the Roman Age. It was
reintroduced in Murano in the late 14th century. To obtain the Murrine a cane has to
be produced and then cut in small pieces, which normally have a particular drawing
inside. The Murrine are then melted together, following a precise design, and then blown
until the desired shape is obtained.
