Murano art glass is mostly free hand blown therefore no visible seams from molds or moulds are present. Silicate glass is heated in an oven to an amorphous and semi-liquid state. The soft glass can be mixed with different powders, affecting transparency, colors and stiffness. These chemical compounds can be added directly in the oven or during the glassblowing process. The Murano artistic glass maker molds the semi-liquid glass, slowly transforming it to a more solid condition, into all kinds of shapes, from scultural vases to tiny beads, goblets or lamps, and a diversity of multi-dimensional sculptures. Pontil marks (puntello) from crimping tools (taglianti and taioli) and other implements used during the creating process, identifies the item as having been handmade. Tools like borselle, pacioffi and pinze stretch and bend the glass and create scallops and decors, locally named, morise. Controlled bubbles, filigrana or filigree, and millefiori murrini, are internal glass blowing techniques that require more specialized skills.
