The Murano glass masters were not only artists and producers of glass objects, but they were also pioneers in the science of producing glass itself. Perhaps the most important development in Murano glass-making was the discovery by Murano Glass Master Angelo Barovier in the Mid 1400s of the formula for producing the worlds first truly transparent glass, Cristallo Veneziano. The impact of this discovery can not be overstated.
Not only was there immediate demand for glassware such as drinking glasses, bowls and vases made of Cristallo Veneziano, Cristallo also paved the way for advancement in glass arts by, for example, enabling the glass masters to produce the world's first purely reflective glass mirrors.
