Modern Italian Murano Art Glass Platter, Ercole Moratti, Murano, Venice, Italy circa 2000

The superb translucent quality of this hand made Venetian art glass platter from Italy circa 2000 showcases the extraordinary skill of contemporary glass makers from the island of Murano in Venice, Italy. The foundation of the platter is in a white color and set with small sections of "murrino", the slender rods of Venetian glass made in a multitude of patterns and colors. There is a three step process to make such a platter with the murrino sections placed into a frame first, then the single color glass matrix poured to surround the individual glass beads. Be sure to enlarge the photograph showing the small beads that begin the process. Then the platter is fired in the kiln to fuse the glass together. The heat causes the platter to bend slightly and assume its sloped shape. After the platter has cooled it is buffed to smooth the surface to a lovely satin finish. The platter stands upon a custom made iron stand for excellent display. The platter contains a small bead with the letter "M" to identify the maker as well as the original stamp of authenticity on the reverse side certifying that the platter was hand made on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy.
