Murano Glass, Venice

Venice is famous for its colourful glasswork. In the 13th century, all glassworks in Venice were transferred to Murano, an island not far from the City. The blazing furnaces, open fires and vats of molten glass were perceived as a threat to the City and hence the transfer.
Here is a photostory of how I experienced Murano glass.
