About Mosaici Donà Murano

Mosaici Donà Murano, or MDM, is the only mosaic smalti maker in Murano, an island-city close to Venice. MDM produces an impressive standard palette with 291 standard colors of mosaic smalti, and thousands more colors available by special order. MDM's owner, Stefano Donà, is a third-generation glass artisan who colors his smalti using recipes handed down through his family. MDM smalti glass tiles are exceptionally durable, with a high sheen, and are appropriate for both architectural and artistic projects.

MDM gold leaf glass offered by di Mosaico provides the superior quality and durability of hand-poured glass. A thin layer of 24-carat gold leaf is placed on top of poured glass, and another layer of molten glass is poured on top. The pouring process offers a better fusing of the layers than the manufactured process of sandwiching gold leaf between plates of glass and heating in an oven.
