Glass

Viewed the Venetian Glass exhibition at the NGV.
We have visited Morano Island and the glass factory, Venice, to see the beautiful Monaro glass being blown and made.

Venetian glass, or cristallo, as the Venetians referred to it, became famous throughout the Mediterranean region fro the 13th century onward.  It was prized for its remarkable clarity, technical facility and transparent watery fineness.
The exhibition shows glass ranging from the 16th to the 20th century.

  4. My mum was an avid learner and brought home many books on glass to show us and invite us to share her love of all things beautiful.
