Creating a murrine design involves multiple stages; however, it begins with the preparation of a glass rod in an exclusive manner. Several layers of semi-liquid glass paste are prepared with one being put on the top of other around the cylindrical rod. Subsequently, every layer is moulded to form a particular flower or star-like shape and colour. The multi-layered rod is then elongated and cut into tiny tubular pieces known as murrine.
These pieces are cleaned and organised in a preferred pattern inside a distinct heat-resistant mould to deliver the object the required shape. In the next stage, the mould holding the murrine pattern is put into a special furnace that plays a pivotal role in the entire Murano glass making craft. It is used to heat the glass mixture and give it the desired shape while it is in a molten state.
As soon as the murrines start sticking to one another inside the furnace, the mould is taken out and its contents are squeezed to form an unbroken Millefiori surface having no openings. It is again placed into the furnace to generate and shape the final object. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Vases".
