Instead of heading out to murano, or taking a chance at buying some glass without knowing its provenance, visit Mauro Vianello's studio/shop on the calle de morti. It is a privilege to watch him at work. This is real artisan glass making at its very best. The pieces are technically brilliant and sometimes very witty too! I bought a little glass chicken - a perfect representation of one of my chickens at home, and while I watched Mauro Vianello made a perfect dolphin for me too. His website is: www.maurovianello.com and there are links to videos showing him at work. I think that visiting this studio gives the visitor an authentic view into Venetian craftsmanship.
