GlassOfVenice.com, top online destination for authentic Murano Glass imported directly from Venice, Italy, now offers a unique informational resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the techniques, tradition, and history behind Murano Glass. This once again confirms what many customers have already discovered: GlassOfVenice is more than a shopping destination; it is a special kind of company that cares about Venetian artistic heritage and has close ties with Murano glass masters. The company has been leading the way in promoting authentic Murano Glass around the world and helping people appreciate this ancient art and the modern-day challenges it is facing. With the launch of its new About Murano Glass portal the company takes another step in educating customers about Murano Glass and helping them better understand this unique product.
While it has a thousand-year-old history, Murano Glass is not as famous and well-known as other art forms. You won’t see much of it in museums, and most people have never heard the names of great Murano artists. Its turbulent history features multiple periods of glory and decline, yet Murano Glass survived and retained many of its original characteristics. Murano Island off of Venice is still mostly populated by glassmakers and their families, blowing glass in simple furnaces, just like centuries ago. This is what makes Murano Glass so special and desirable, in contrast to the mass-produced utility products that characterize our times.
To help customers select a quality piece of Murano Glass, GlassOfVenice spent months to gather, analyze, write, and present a wealth of information about the history of this art and the process of glassmaking, complete with high-quality photos and videos. Moreover, the company tapped into the knowledge of its own experienced staff and the leading experts to answer customer questions about techniques, authenticity, artistic value, repair, and other topics of interest to all Murano Glass enthusiasts. The information is presented in well-organized and easy-to-read format and makes a perfect complement to the outstanding selection of Murano Glass products available for sale on the website.
The company’s spokesperson says: “many people are interested in Murano Glass but few know much about its history, techniques, or the skill, talent, and hard work it takes to make each piece. Now we have put such information at their fingertips to help people better understand and appreciate the products that they purchase, as well as know how to select authentic pieces if they shop elsewhere.” With this new development GlassOfVenice has yet again shown its passion for Murano Glass and demonstrated its commitment to reviving the popularity of this ancient art via customer awareness and education.
