The material itself actually comes from the enamel technique. To make it, a mixture of different coloured glass rods is fused together and repeatedly covered with glass. Then slices are cut from these rods, which are called murrine in Italian and English. The result is a mass of colorful glass pieces that look like a colorful field of flowers. The small pieces of glass are then fused in the kiln to create unique works of art. This technique, already known in Egypt around 1800 BC, was continued in the Hellenism in Alexandria in the form of bowl-shaped vessels. Millefiori glass reached its peak in the 15th-16th century AD, but it was not until the 19th century that the term millefiori glass became established.
