The Molinari Family has been featured in magazines ranging from In Style to Natural Health.
Many Italians immigrated to Brazil in the early 20th century, including families from the island of Murano near Venice. Antonio Carlos and Paulo Molinari, NOVICA's leading art glass designers in Brazil, were taught directly by Aldo Bonora, the first Italian master to arrive in Brazil from Murano Island.

The vase I ordered is the singularly most beautiful vase I have ever seen. I collect pottery and glasswear and this is my favorite. You and your family are very gifted artisans. Additionally all the artwork I have ordered, including your's, comes wrapped up beatifully- I'ts like opening a gift on Christmas morning. Thank You!!
On behalf of my home ... the beauty of this vase is endless. It is a very versatile piece and it is a great conversational piece.
I received the vase, ""Blue Dream"" today. It is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen. It is heavy, yet looks delicate. I am unable to describe its beauty. Quick shipment, personalized card made it even better. I will buy from them again. Thank you. Tracy

Unbelievable is the best way to put it. The murano art glass is pure magic. I actually have a pair of gold dust murano art glass earrings and this is how i got introduced to it. The quality and beauty is unmatched by design and artisans who create each unique piece. Wow. I've searched within the USA for a long time and am glad i finally found you. I've bought a special table just for the three pieces I got and they are all fantastic. They were rainbow teardrop, spectral dusk and my all time favorite is crimson volcano. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart. Again - unbelievable
I am in awe of the 'Dusk I' vase I purchased. I can look at it for hours and feel as if I am trapped in that magical moment between sunset and nightfall. You have captured that moment and sealed it in glass. Thank-you.
I received my vase today. The vase was exceptionally beautiful. The packaging was a wonderful surprise and included a card signed by the artist. The photo of the vase did not do it justice. This vase far exceeded my expectations. I bought the rainbow tulip vase as a gift for my mother-in-law and I am sure she will be pleased. The quality and beauty of this vase is unbelievable! Thank you very much!
If a glass vase can be called sexy, then I think the Ruby Volcano vase is a red hot lover! Its sleek contours and warm colors are so seductive, and it is fascinating when viewed in different sources of light. The ruby red glass seems to rise from the bottom in a continuous upward flow, just like a stream of lava rising from within a volcano. What a beauty, with or without a blossom to accent it! I have visited Venice and Murano, and in my opinion, the craftsmanship of the Murano Artisans of Brazil is equal to the murano glass produced in Italy. I could easily develop yet another addiction to this line of Novica products! Thank you for another delightful Novica experience! Lori
I needed some beautiful vases, got onto the Internet, used Google to find Novica, ordered 'Ruby Volcano' and 'Blue Moondrops' from Brazil. I chose the inexpensive air delivery and they were effortlessly in my hands four days later. Outstanding pieces indistinguishable from Venetian glass and very reasonable priced. Each vase came well packaged with full documentation and a hand-written greeting card. A great experience! I am now looking forward to receiving the brass sculpture of 'Dancers' and the ceramic statuette of a 'Woman's Torso' which I have just ordered.

I ordered the Verdent Volcano vase as a college graduation gift for a co-worker. (The colors were her school colors.) It arrived today, and it is beautiful. She was thrilled. Also, the process of buying and receiving the vase was hassle-free. Thank you.

The two Murano pieces that we recently ordered were even more beautiful than the pictures from which we selected the items. Only one comment about the decanter--the inside neck of the bottle was rough in several places and I believe the stopper should have been a little larger. All in all, however, it made a beautiful wedding gift for our newlyweds. Thank you.
The vase was beautiful. The amazing box that it was wrapped in was overshadowed by the beautiful simplicity of the vase. It made a wonderful gift. Thank you.
The vase I ordered was better than the picture showed. It is an absolutely beautiful piece.
Thank you for the vase I ordered. I am very pleased with delivery and fast service and the vase is truly a work of art. The coloring is unbelievable. It sits on my window with the sun shining on it which really makes it magnificent.
This was my first purchase of a Novica item and what a great experience. The vase is absolutely beautiful and is even better than what I was expecting.
Vase ordered 30 October received today 4 November. extremely fast delivery, thank you... the vase is absolutely beautiful, I am impressed with the quality.
""Blue Drop"", a 10 inch glass vase was stunning. Much nicer than the photo. Flawless. Locally I would have paid soooo much more. Delivery was swift. The vase was very, very well packed. Nice, sweet personal touches. I bought 2, one for each of the women in my life, my wife and my mother....they make a great gift, convenient, beautiful....
Beautiful vase. Recently went to a local dealer that sold similar, but not as beautiful, pieces that were at least 5x as much. I look forward to adding more of their pieces to my growing collection.
Rainbow Teardrop vase was ordered for Valentines Day for my wife. Arrived timely and well packaged. The item is magnificant. My wife collects hand blown glass and I expected a pretty piece, but I never anticipated such a beautiful work of art. It is sure to become a family treasure for generations. Thank you.
I received the ""Red Fire"" centerpiece yesterday and it is absolutely beautiful. I can't stop looking at! Thank you to Novica for this wonderful site and to the Murano Artisans for their great artistry.
I was very impressed with the Murano handblown vase (Modern Blue Ocean) and so did my boss (for whom I purchased the vase). The workmanship was very high quality and a great price -- exactly what I was looking for when I came to the internet to find a special but afforable gift. This was my first Novica purchase and I plan many more in the future (but for myself!).
Many thanks to the Murano Artisans of Brazil for ""Blue Ipanema,"" which just arrived. It was very well protected and arrived in perfect shape. My only regret is I ordered it to give as a gift and I'd really like to keep it for myself! It's perfect. Thanks again!

Hi all, I've just recieved my "" Murano Verdant Vase "" after only few days of tracking it on its long voyage from Brazil and its perfect. My wife and I spent many days searching for the right piece of art as a final touch for a room we spent many weeks re-designing. We are both very impressed with it and it now sits proudly in our hall with a spot light shining directly down on it which enhanceses the beautiful colours. I'd also like to mention the fantastic delivery service which I have to say was very impressive.....only 6 days to arrive !!! Many many thanks to the team and I'm sure you'll soon hear from us again Jamie & Rachel from England.
My Rainbow Volcano vase is simply exquisite. Am in awe of the artists -- and grateful to the entire Novica crew. Muito obrigado!
I have purchased ""Ruby Volcano"" vase performed by Murano Artisans of Brazil in early May 2008. The vase took almost a month to arrive but it was totally worth to wait. I really liked the quality and vibrant colors and it serves as a centerpiece at my dining table. The vase is absolutely gorgeous and I will shop at Novica again. I have also received the card signed by an artist with a nice view of Brazil - other reviewers have mentioned this as well.
For my 35th birthday I decided to order a piece from the Murano glassmakers. Several years I attended an art exhibit in which the works of the Murano glassmakers were on display and I was simply moved by the artistry. I found Novica and soon discovered I could purchase glassworks here. I feel in love with a piece called ""Sea Wave"" but for whatever reason never bought it. For my birthday I decided to do it, to purchase this singular piece of beauty. My birthday was yesterday and ""Sea Wave"" showed up today. I couldn't be happier! It came packaged so mightily, it could have gone around the world twice. When I cut away all the packing material and finally found my ""Sea Wave"", well, I'm moved. Thank you Murano Artists of Brazil! This is the best birthday present I have ever gotten!
I have been searching for a vase for weeks. I've seen many beautiful ones, which I've bookmarked and gone back to 3-4 times. I thought I knew what I had in mind, but when I saw your vase, all others went out of my mind. I knew this vase was absolutely beautiful, with a marvelous design, with presence, and I knew it was perfect. It was the first vase I saw that I had no doubts about, that I knew was totally what I had envisioned (before I saw it). It is a beautiful, unique work. You should be proud. (I hope you are not one of these people where you think of criticism for weeks, and praise goes in one ear and out the other.)
I received the New Life vase yesterday and I cannot say enough about the beauty of this item. It is an exquisite piece of artwork. I am so glad I chose to purchase this unique vase to give as a Christmas gift to my sister and her husband. I highly recommend the Murano Artisans of Brazil. You will not be disappointed.
The hand blown sculpture ""Jade and Amber power"" is absolutely fabulous and arrived in Australia within 10 days of ordering. The colours are superb and I will certainly buy more items.
