Oh.. the prettiest glass creations on the Venetian Island of Murano, Italy.
Above is one of the glass factories we visited, with it’s beautiful chandelier suspended above the entrance.
For 2 Euro per person you get to see the man in the picture below create a magnificent glass horse and a vase, all in the space of about 4 minutes! All the while he had a cigarette in his hand. Quite amazing really.
You can see he follows all health and safety regulations too – You’d wear socks and sandals too, if you were working with furnaces and molten glass, wouldn’t you?
