Murano sommerso vases are a type of handcrafted glass vase made using the sommerso technique, which involves layering different colors of glass to create a unique and striking effect. The sommerso technique is one of the signature techniques of Murano glassmaking, and has been used for centuries on the island of Murano.

In a sommerso vase, layers of different colored glass are melted together and then blown into a mold, creating a layered effect that gives the vase a three-dimensional appearance. The outer layer of glass is usually a clear or translucent color, which allows the colors of the inner layers to show through.

Murano sommerso vases can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and may feature a range of colors and patterns. Some may have a simple and modern design, while others may be more intricate and ornate, with detailed patterns or designs.

The use of the sommerso technique in creating Murano glass vases adds an extra layer of depth and richness to the finished piece, making them highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts of fine glassware. They are often used as decorative pieces to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room.
