The other day I had a chance to wander over on Murano with friends for a few hours. The magic the Murano glassblowers create never ceases to amaze me, and this day was no different. As I turned a corner on the street leading to the Faro vaporetto stop, I came face to face with the newest sculpture in the square.
I loved it instantly. I wasn't particularly keen on the sculpture it replaced- a large glass bride done in all whites and silvers. But this one- it's perfect. Sheer magic. It instantly reminded me of the intensely hot glowing fires I see in the kilns used in all the glass foundrys.
Now I need to figure out when to get back to Murano at night, to see this one lit up.
