The art of glass

Since the 13th century Venice and its glass owe their fame and fortune to the mastery of the translucent coloring, to which natural light confers a magic dimension. The master glassmakers exploit a traditional manual technique, without the need of molds, using a few secular instruments that remain unchanged until today, to realize pieces of a great elegance and lightness. The Venetian maritime power conveys these coveted treasures all over the globe: from the European royal tables to the confines of Asia.

The masters of glass and the craftsmen

Carrying out successfully his commissions, Aristide himself leads his team of glassmakers. Under his instructions, with the aid of secular instruments, his highly skilled master glass-makers carve the hot glass with precise, rapid gestures. Their task is to prepare the mineral colors, to apply the gold leaf, to bring back to the flames every two minutes the glass cane. All in one breath, held in check by the glass and its short malleability, while the snoring furnace mantains its burning temperature.

The Cathedral

Restoring one of the most beautiful Murano glass factories in activity, Najean displays his full potential. His artistic inspiration finds a new vitality in the sparse spaces of the Cathedral.
The ovens rumble beneath the brick vaults and the old oak beams; amazing drawings and silhouettes lie tangled on the floor; sculptures, prototypes and chandeliers overflow the space stretching themselves between sparkling tubes and steel structures. A view that takes your breath away.
