Episode 32: Murano Glass

In the year 1291 all of the glassmakers of Venice were forced to practice on Murano Island in order to protect the rest of the city's population from potential fires. Since that point it was known as a focal point for innovation in materials and styles for glasswork.

I was fortunate to be traveling with a glass artist while in Venice many years ago. Because of his knowledge I was able to visit the home and studio of Lino Tagliapietra, an artist whose work I did not know.
