About Millefiori: Literally translated “mille” means thousand and “fiori” means flowers so millefiori means thousand flowers. Millefiori is a glasswork technique to create mosaic chips for use in decorating Murano Glass pieces. It is universally recognized as originating from Murano. To create millefiori, the glassmaker fuses colored cane together into a thick, round collection of colored rods, it is then heated and stretched to the desired diameter. The long cylindrical piece of glass shows a flower design when you look down the center. Cut into mosaic segments you now have the cross-section and a distinct flower will emerge prominently.
