Murano Glass

On the island of Murano we watched the glass making while we were in Venice.

  1. This glass making is always a curiosity to me. How someone can work in a small glory hole to produce a thing of such beauty. Many of the beads that the Murano artists are beautiful. I also have a love affair with the way the artists turn out glass objects. There are several glory holes around the USA and I used to observe the one in Cedar Point, Ohio all the time. I have a very delicately blown stein. I watched a student of the school in Cedar Point blow one and I went into the shop to buy one just like it.
