Interesting to learn the history of this type of glassware. Although I am not into this kind of stuff it was interesting none the less.

There is a wonderful display of centuries of artistic glass, as well as a demonstration by a young man of considerable talent to create a beautiful glass piece in front of you.

Absolutely riveting! Have never seen how glass is fired in a furnace. The artisan handled the melted glass as though he had made these beautiful works of art all his life. Absolutely riveting presentation.
