Murano Glass Gift Idea
In my article about Glassblowing Art as the perfect gift, I mentioned Murano Glass. A Murano glass gift would be something really unique whether this is a sculpture wine or champagne created out of Murano glass.
Having a few Murano Champagne Glasses would be great for National Bubble day celebrating a day with delicious bubbles.
Of course, you can order Murano Glass and have it delivered but following a glassblowing workshop is just something special because Murano Glass only comes from Murano, near Venice in Italy, so in order to create a Murano glass sculpture you have to travel to Italy.
Murano Glass History
There is already so much written about the history of Murano and it keeps fascinating. Just imagine that you would have lived in ancient Venation or Murano times and although you can create a medieval fantasy, that is not the same as living in a period that was so much different than today.
When you go back in history then Venice was a major trade city between the east and the west and the interesting part is that Venice got many immigrants because they fled Constantinople which is now Istanbul during the siege and took all their knowledge on glass-making with them.
Point made that the art of glassmaking goes well back to 3,600 BCE in Mesopotamia and the immigrants took all their knowledge with them to Venice.
It is very interesting to read and important if you want to understand why Murano is famous as a glassblowers paradise but at Amoware we look more to the artisan that creates magnificent products using a skill that many of us just do not have and use that to have a gift made out of Murano Glass as the perfect way to make someone more than happy.
National Wine Day
The national wine day does not mention drinking but wine in a bottle need to be poured in a glass to drink and what would be better than pouring wine in a Murano Wine Glass especially if that glass is designed by you and blown into a perfect wine glass by a Murano Glassblower artist?
Celebrate the national wine day or national wine drinking day with your best friend, the receiver of a great gift.
Murano Wine Glass
There are numerous webshops selling Murano or Venation Wine Glasses.
However, when you look at giving a Murano Wine Glass as a present then it must be unique.
Especially when you look at the prices then it would be very interesting to fly to Italy, enjoy a vacation going to Venice and visit one of the glassblowers on Murano Island and have them design and make a special Murano wine glass.
Murano Champagne Glass
Worldwide we celebrate the national champagne day on the 31st of December and would it not be better to enjoy New Year’s Eve drinking champagne out of Murano glasses saying goodbye to the current year and salute the new year.
Just have a look at these 24 karat gold set of 6 glasses then it would be just magnificent to celebrate New Year drinking champagne from a 24 karat gold Murano champagne glass.
National Drink Day
In case you were looking for another day than drinking wine or champagne then have a look at https://drinkdays.com/full-list it shows a lot of beers. It might not be your first choice to drink beer from a luxury Murano Glass but you might think in having a whisky, brandy, rum, cognac or any other drink where Murano glass would be the perfect pick over any other “ordinary” glass to enjoy a well-deserved drink on a special day.
We are not all drinkers then a sculpture or a vase would be great and they look magnificent.
There is not a chance that you will be able to design and create a sculpture in only a few days when you do not have any experience in glassblowing.
The skill level needed to design and blow a Murano sculpture is only for the expert glassblowing artisan with exceptional Murano glassblowing skills.
To see some examples, just have a look at this clear glass sculpture and you will be amazed by the beauty of these sculptures.
Murano Glassblowing Class
Have you ever thought about following a glassblowing class or workshop?
It is certainly possible in your area, just grab your phone and search for glassblowing workshop near me and you will find many glassblowing artisans in your area.
I already wrote about this at my Glassblowing Art article but you will not find a Murano glassblowing class in your area, this is only possible on Murano just a boat ride out of Venice.
Murano Glass Gifts
Book yourself and your friend a trip to Murano, have a great vacation, follow a glassblowing workshop and take that home as the ultimate Murano Glass gift.
It will be a vacation you never will forget and a drink out of the Murano glasses an enjoyable moment of a perfect day.
