This manufacturer in Murano invented a centrifuge machine and technique that spins molten glass into discs that are then manipulated by hand into various organic shapes. During the process varying colors and finishes are applied to the glass. Still warm pieces are put through an annealing process in a tunnel oven to cool tehm slowly so they do not explode. The annealing process can take anywhere from hours to many days, depending on the thickness of the glass. Annealing is a process of slowly cooling glass to relieve internal stresses after it was formed. The process may be carried out in a temperature-controlled kiln known as a Lehr.
