Murano!


OK here are just a few photos from today. I will take more photos tomorrow of the town and our apartment and the views from there!


A shrine I saw when I was walking from the studio to our apartment.


Lucio's sign outside his studio!


Lucio in his studio! Very nice studio. We also went to Cesare Toffolo's gallery and studio today, I had taken a class from him in 1993 at Pilchuck and when I walked into the gallery his wife Teresa remembered me from back then! She got on the phone right away to Cesare and he came and took Whit and I to his studio where his 2 sons were working! His studio is awesome!!! I am going back there this week and will try and get some photos of it then, today I was just too excited visiting with him that I didn't even think about photos....


And I bet none of you knew that I too had a gallery and studio here on Murano since 2000!


Here is the group at dinner tonight! Isn't Tara the cutest (Leah and Derek's daughter for those of you that don't know her). We have a great group here, I am looking forward to our workshop which will start on Thursday.


Just thought I would share with you all what was served tonight at dinner........ I just couldn't eat them.........


Or this guy!!!!! But I did have some great gnocci with cheese sauce!

OK more tomorrow!

Ciao!!!!!!!!

Jacob said he would never eat that! " The tenatacles would like get stuck in your throat!" gag me, too! I would eat stuff that could not eat me back! I love the shrine. You can keep your eyes open for religious stuff for me to cast. That could be fun. Have a great day. My new washer comes tomorrow. xo, Lois
