Master Paolo Crepax
at the tender age of 10 years begins to work with the master glassmaker Livio Seguso then in 1966 at 16 years Master Scarpa Fulvio gave him his first square as “Master” until 1973 when Maestro Paolo Crepax began an independent journey and opened a furnace Vetreria Clown Murano. He began the production of clowns clowns, Venetian ladies and other souvenirs.
In 1979 Paolo Crepax innovator and immersed in the vital artistic life of the Venice of the time transforms the glassworks Clown srl in “Filigrana srl” with an artistic orientation in particular on the processing precisely called “Filigrana”, the research expands into an experimental path in the world of lighting and objects and begins a successful production with the technique of filigree.
In 1984 Paolo Crepax began to increase quality by focusing on contemporary creativity and then began working for established companies such as Glass Signature, Leucos, Artemis, Vistosi, Otylight, etc.


In recent years he has dabbled with painting, pouring into the canvases his colors and his artistic visions.


His thought of it …
“After 54 years of work for me it is as if it were still the first day. I could not help but work this extraordinary and fascinating subject, an art that does not sleep at night, wakes you at 3 in the morning, sketch a drawing and want to see it materialize in the glass. Even nicer to finish the work on Friday and wait anxiously on Monday to resume “Living”.

La Murrina

Murrina glass is made from a glass tube made entirely by hand with a unique system in the world, known only in the island of Murano and is composed of several steps and overlapping, with exclusively artisanal methods, giving the glass a cylindrical shape, after having marbled it several times on the “bronzìn” (a metal plane).

It is a very old technique that dates back to the early 1900s and is currently only made on the island of Murano by the Murano glassmakers, this type of processing so difficult and rare has been handed down from father to son for hundreds of years, and still today remains the only system to create a real glass barrel by Murrina Veneziana, repeating today as hundreds of years ago the same steps and the same artisanal system to be able to produce such a unique and original glass of its kind. This is why it is becoming increasingly difficult and rare to find articles made of real Murrina Veneziana glass.

The glass aventurine

is a particular work invented in Venice on the island of Murano in the first half of the seventeenth century (about 1620).

It is a translucent crystalline paste, inside which are dipped straws or copper crystals with shiny metallic oxides, which create an effect that imitates that of aventurine quartz.

The procedure provides for the addition, at the end of the fusion, and on several occasions, of a certain quantity of iron, silicon metal or coal beating, all reducing raw materials. The metallic copper begins to precipitate, and at the end of a few hours of cooling this is completely separated from the basic glass, dispersing homogeneously in minute crystals, which in the best cases reach the millimeter in size. It is therefore the presence of copper deposits that tends to give the material a reddish brown shimmer with golden reflections.

Aventurine is often used as a thick decorative element on flat or hollow surfaces, both in glass objects and as a complement to metal working (jewelry, furniture). Due to its metallic sheen, it was once called “stellaria”.
