June 13

We were fortunate to be in Venice for the Venice Biennale, an art festival that occurs on odd years. Today we went over to Muran, an island that specializes in glass. There we happened upon a glass show that was spectacular. It was installed in a very old (hundreds of years) glass factory, complete with the old kilns, implements, etc. Of course this made for a stunning backdrop with impact for the glass pieces. The work ranged from traditional bottles to contemporary in the extreme. We were so impressed with the quality and depth of the show. One titled "Inside Out" was a suspended clear glass skeleton sporting magnificent feathered wings with a smaller skeleton above.
