Load more items (2 more in this list)

Murano glass is a famous product of the Venetian island of Murano. Located off the shore of Venice, Italy, Murano has been a commercial port as far back as the 7th century.
By the 10th century, the city had become well known for its glassmakers, who created unique Murano glass.
While Murano glassmakers have settled and operate elsewhere, some say authentic Murano glass is fabricated only in Murano.

(from Wikipedia)

Mauro Bonaventura was born in Venice in 1965.
At 18 he graduated with a diploma in electronics.
In his search for a job, fate and providence gave him an opportuneny to become an apprentice in the age old tradenion of Murano glassblowing.
His career began when learning the techniques of glassblowing and glass decoration and to date he still remains in the glassmaker's trade.
However, Mauro had an urgent need to satisfy his creative pursuens in the field of sculpturing work.
In order to achieve this aim, he enrolled in the "Liceo" in Venice which specialises in Art subjects.
His works are in important galleries and museum all over the world.
