STORIA E CONCETTO AZIENDALE
Cristiano and Andrea De Biasi have followed in their father's footsteps. They are the sons of Virgilio, who started colouring precious seed beads in the '50s. Having mastered the necessary glass-making methods, Cristiano and Andrea introduced their creations - at first mostly clocks and frames - on the domestic and foreign markets. They addressed their products in particular to retailers, distribution chains and specialized ateliers.
By using the most valuable types of Murano glass, such as zanfirico, avventurina, pastel colours, and by combining these glasses with authentic gold and silver leaf, Cristiano and Andrea produce innovative collections of jewellery and plates.
These combine the thousand-year-long tradition of Murano glass-making with modern creativity and the ongoing search for new dimensions and colours.For the first time the collections that are present on this site have been put up for sale directly and are also displayed in our show room in Via Navagero, a couple of meters away from our workshop. The fact that we are putting our products directly on the market is a point of great pride for us.The De Biasi glass factory is also authorised to display the trademark Vetro Artistico di Murano, which is the only guarantee for all unique and original Murano products, created with Murano glass. (Promovetro e Vetro Artistico di Murano).
Cristiano and Andrea are presently collaborating with specialized retailers in Italy, Japan, the US and France. They also collaborate with Italian and foreign designers, and create models based on projects.For wholesale orders please contact Cristiano or Andrea De Biasi directly..
The problem of counterfeiting of Murano glass
For many years up to now, many glass products have been made outside the island of Murano, but have absolutely no relation at all with it. This trend has unfortunately developed more and more in an undisturbed way, empowered by globalization, the opening of international market and general disinterest.
The risk concerns the actual existence of many manufacturing and also industrial businesses being or having been based on Murano for the production of artistic glass.
The counterfeiting of the real origins of glass products, the presentation of these products with false and deceiving made on Murano labels, the sale of fake manufactures...all of this is present both on web sites and in shops, to the point that the phenomenon involving the sale of counterfeited articles is present both in some shops on Murano and in Venice, and outside the boundaries of the lagoon, almost in the whole world....
The Promovetro Consortium, an association of Murano glass-makers, has started a firm and decided opposition to this phenomenon by promoting the trademark Vetro Artistico di Murano, the only true guarantee that articles genuinely come from Murano and are made in Murano glass.
