What an opportunity you had to watch this work in action. I love Murano glass but do not own any... it is really very colorful..
Yes, "this is HOT"
Wonderful capture

A fantastic find for this theme Peter !! I had the great pleasure to assist at the birth of different glass products in Southern France many years ago.....

This is really hot!
What attracts me is the whole composition, like an abstract painting!

Yes Dave....this is only a five minute boat taxi ride across the lagoon from Venice. They had a free promotion ride over to a glass factory there - which was a bonus to us on our last day there. I felt the need to purchase something after this fellow walked us through spending an hour of his time with us in the ellaborate art filled showroom. Fell in love with a $2,000.00 euro horse sculpture that the Mrs. talked me out of after pondering about how it may get broken in shipping etc.

Thanks all for your comments here.
