would i be right in thinking that its blown rather than lamp work.
for a piece so small i'd imagine that would be quite a task,

i've never seen this type of mut before, 1st glance i didn't like it at all,
but as i looked over the pics i was completely won over.

I've seen a few videos of the small animals being made in Murano. They used the furnace and work very quickly in these videos.

The small animals I've seen have all been horses. One of the youtube videos is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyUEqiJ52I4. I like this video better than many because it shows the furnace.

This man leaves me a looking at my 'almost' empty wallet and cursing my fate.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
