Cuneo Furnace Marbles


In December of 2008 Cuneo Furnace ceased production of our marbles and closed the studio in California which had operated continuously since 1971. House of Marbles purchased much of the last stock of marbles and is selling the final selection.  We have some new designs to online this year (2014), these have been on display in one of our shops but we now would prefer to open them up to a wider audience and sell them online. These will all be online by the end of March 2014.

About Cuneo Furnace Marbles

Cuneo Furnace was founded in 1971 as Maslach Art Glass. It is one of the oldest and most innovative glassmaking studios in the United States.

Their highly decorative marbles are all handmade. Firstly they create a patterned glass rod - this is the incredibly hard part. They utilise 16th century Italian glass techniques, latticinio, filigrana and zanfirico. Each colour and strand is a separate piece of glass cane or ribbon. The design is constructed of molten glass with layers of cane and collared glass. The pattern is cased in crystal, shaped and is drawn out to reduce it in size. The pattern rods are cut into small pieces, heated, twisted and shaped to the complete design. The process takes several days and combines heavy, hot furnace work, tricky and difficult shaping, as well as the final smoothing and polishing.
