No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Just in case people can't wait to hear more this is not quite a paperweight being one of many impressive outdoor glass sculptures on Murano . This was was installed in time for Christmas 2007 having been designed by Simone Cenedese and is in the midst of a square called Campo Santo Stefano
Maybe a nice topic for the Glass Cafe  :)

Alastair, thank you for adding the details for us, most interesting. The topic will be moved over to Murano forum, rather than Cafe (which is for non-glass chat really and where topics are regularly pruned), so it will be retained for reference. :)

Why spoil the look of a great piece by putting tatty railings up. A nice glass partition surround would still protect and not spoil. Would like to see it on a sunny day....
