Glass making techniques developed in Murano Italy in 1526 are used in these pieces. The millifiore techniques used for the cats’ eyes are the same techniques used hundreds of years ago. This process is largely responsible for the fame enjoyed by Murano glass today. Every Glass Cat is unique and one of a kind . There may be similarities in color and pattern but no two cats are the same.
Cat Symbolism: The cat, as a symbol, carries double meanings mostly. It balances two opposite things always – for instance, light and dark, rest and action, outer and inner, up and down, good or bad, etc. Overall, the cat is the symbol of patience, independence, curiosity, and courage.
Virginia and Tony anneal the glass they create in a digitally controlled annealer for strength and durability. The images you’ll see are of our actual art glass selection and the piece you will receive should you make a purchase. Thank you for supporting fine Canadian Hand blown art glass.
