Venetian glass making was a secretly guarded formula which has been in existence since the thirteenth century. It’s a complicated process, and a lot is involved in making it the craft that it is. To this day, the technique is revered throughout the world for its vibrant colors and crystalline clarity, elaborate designs, and unmatched craftsmanship, honed over several centuries. Since then, we continue to create inspiration for the collection at Susan Shaw.
