Great video. It was better when the camera got closer so we could see him work. Do you know what studio or company it was? I was surprised that the gaffer was able to make the pieces so quickly. Thanks for posting the link.

Hi TxSilver.  I don´t know the studio´s name, but i remember it was a few steps away (to the right) from the vaporetto stop.  While doing these pieces, they explained that to avoid the crash, they put them into special ovens to cool slowly, so the glass tensions stayed balanced.
