Delicate threads of colored glass form the captivating pattern of this limited-edition glass ornament. The “filigrana” pattern of twisted glass was invented by the master glassblowers on the island of Murano in the 16th century and has been a fundamental design in glassmaking for the past 500 years. The glass artists of Liberty Craftworks are proud to offer this modern interpretation of a classic for today.

Master glassblowers of Murano, Italy, discovered they could enhance the beauty of even the most extraordinary piece by fusing tiny rods of glass to form a pattern of parallel lines. Our Liberty Craftworks glass artisans employ the same time-honored technique when they create these exquisite limited-edition ballotini ornaments. They manipulate delicate rods of enamel glass into a pattern that takes this traditional technique in a modern direction for a one-of-a-kind creation — bringing the past forward. Sure to be a new favorite in handmade design and treasured as a family keepsake.
