For those of you who may never have the opportunity to visit the Murano Glass Museum in person, I took the following photos. These cards explain both the Vocabulary of Murano Glass Making and a Glossary of the Types of Glass & Decorative Procedures. On the very last page, you will find a note about Conterie and the Methods of Making Glass Beads. Please click the pics to enlarge.
Now, let’s go bead shopping! 🙂
Also, just a quick reminder – if you happen to be in Boston tonight, stop by Bead & Fiber Gallery at 460 Harrison Ave. to check out my current exhibit, Under the Microscope. Tonight is First Friday from 5-9pm! Please check Bead & Fiber’s website for more information. Hope to see you there! 🙂
