The Murano glass blowing industry was moved to the island from Venice in 1921 to protect the city from undue fires.  On Murano, glass blowing flourished as the artisans refined processes discovered from ancient Rome.  They continuously developed and enhanced the technique which has been relied upon ever since. When making the glass they mix it with other minerals which gives it its funky colours and vibrant designs. The resulting liquid glass mixture is then mouth-blown and then handcrafted by master glassmakers in a series of elaborate steps. They used tools to mould, shape and polish the glass to create unique and beautiful designs. For this reason, high-end Murano Glass is called art glass.
