I would like to make a correction.  I said Cesar Toffolo (I guess I have this furnance on my mind today for some reason) but I meant to say Cesare Toso.

tam tam............Thanks for your insight!  The more I read and study about the Italian Glass Masters (maestros), the more I am impressed!  I really wish I could visit Murano, Italy and seen them in action.....I have seen many videos and clips on YouTube.  I also own a couple of Dale Chihuly DVDs.  One of them has (and I forget the names) Chihuly working with a couple of Master blowers from Murano, that he had worked and learned from in the past.  I have never seen anyone work the hot molten glass like these two experts!  They turned a blob of hot glass into a lobster and in another design they made quite a few Cherubs in the same manner.  Blows my mind how these wizards can almost "see" the form they want to create and just pull, sling, twist, and blow, and turn the hot glass into what they imagine.  Absolute magic, in my eyes!!!!!   :tof:
westred......yea, ya betcha!

They were Pino Signoretto and Lino Tagiliapietra. They teach at the Pilchuck School often. Pino's my absolute favorite. Lino's work can only be described as exquisite.
