Venetian Glass Art is a direct importer of Venetian Glass and Murano Glass. Working directly with the furnaces in Murano to bring the finest from the Murano Glass furnaces directly to our customers.
is a story of the love of Venetian glass, a fascination with the
techniques of glass blowing and, of course, a love of Italy, its
people, and its culture. It all started with a trip to Venice in 1984 when
Brenda purchased a Moretti glass necklace with the famous Murano beads.
Many compliments and requests by friends prompted another trip and more
purchases and sparked an interest in the glass. We began studying the
language and our love and appreciation of the people and the culture
grew. Importing the wonderful glass of Murano was a natural extension
of our new lives in Italy with friends and family.
for many years with the International Gem and Jewelry Shows, the San
Francisco International Gift Show and at various shows in the San
Francisco Bay Area, we opened our first online store in 1998 on Yahoo
Stores. We were pioneers in the E-commerce age! And, the rest, as they say, is
history. We remain a family owned business located in Santa Clara and Sunnyvale, CA, USA where we have been importing Venetian Glass and Murano Glass commercially since 1993.
One of our goals at Venetian Glass Art is to provide you with the most exquisite pieces of Venetian and Murano Glass available, whether it be a blown vase or a Murano Glass bead necklace. We do this by working directly with individual artists and families, many whom are second and third generation glass blowers or bead makers. We're sure you'll find the quality of our products to be unrivaled.
