Murano Fashion: Techniques and Aesthetics of Murano Glass Making

February 10, 2023 at 18:00 - 19:00

The lecture by art historian Marina Lukić Cvetić “Murano Fashion: Techniques and Aesthetics of Murano Glass Making” is organized in cooperation with the Museum of Spoonsweet – House of Cvetić, as part of the exhibition “Magic of Glass: Glassware from the Ethnological Collection of Household Furnishings of the National Museum Kraljevo”.

The lecture is devoted to the history, techniques, and styles of making coloured glass, which is associated with the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon and the numerous art workshops there. As well-known as Venetian carnivals and gondolas, from the Venetian Republic to the present day, the fascination for decorative and utilitarian objects made of this glass has not stopped, and at one time it was also made in the domestic factory in Prokuplje. The competitive spirit of dedicated craftsmen who learned strictly guarded techniques brought them privileges and world fame, so Murano aesthetics remained woven into many styles and eras. However, in one period in the former Yugoslavia, these very objects were home decor of special value and a desired symbol of social status. The complex history of Murano glass art has long gone beyond the limits of craft, and its “fashion” has returned again and again, revealing new forms to us, while at the same time resisting becoming a commercial product.

The Museum of Spoonsweet – House of Cvetić is preparing the exhibition “Murano Fashion” where it will present objects made of Murano glass from its unique collection, and the lecture is an introduction to the future project. Lidija Cvetić Vučković, PhD, will talk about the future project and its implementation.
