A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida and southern New England and other places he goes.
Wonderful glassworks, at first I thought you took this pictures in Murano. (You see, I'm always thinking about your photos of Venice).
These places are cool. There's "NovaScotian Crystal" in Halifax Nova Scotia. (Where else, of course?) They have a open garage door and passer bys can watch the glass blowers at work.
I could watch a glass blower making projects for hours. Fascinating.
I LOVE glass. One of my former students is a glass blower and makes wonderful objects, some of which I have purchased. He has an annual holiday sale when he demonstrates his art work. I try not to miss his performance, some of which I've photographed and posted on my blog. Guess I'll have to do that again this Christmas/Hanukkah season. Isn't it fun to watch?!
did you eat there? the food is excellent?
Glass blowing is so interesting to watch, you just have to know when to stop.. Blowing I mean, not watching :))
Love this kind of places. Nice captures Jack.
A very interesting and now rare line of work. My compliments for his products!
Ho Ho Ho!I've seen craftsmen blow glass before. Kinda amazing.
These folks have my respect; I can't imagine that it's easy to blow glass, and to make so many beautiful items. You do have some very cool places in the northeast!
Fascinating and I, too, could watch the glassblower for hours! What a wonderful tour you've taken us on today, Jack!! Great captures! Enjoy your weekend!
Beautiful glasswork but I'm struck by a coincidence. I've been researching some of my old photos that I've scanned recently and will use on my new travel site. One of those photos took quite a lot of work to identify the exact location and I just discovered on Wednesday that it was taken in Quechee Vermont. But, it wasn't this glass work, it was a fresh flower and fruit market called "Fool on the Hill".
I've never seen that done. It's quite a setting.
Love watching these guys working!
Don't let me and my credit card loose in a glassblowing place...I will never cease to be amazed when I watch them.
Sparkly! I like glass very much. Had a chance to stop by Glasi Hergiswil in Hergiswil (yup), Schweiz --- took home only 2 small but lovely pieces.Please visit PVDP today. I posted my singing group.
I've tried glass-blowing a couple of times - like all skills it requires a lot of practise! It is fascinating to watch a good blower at work.
Great post, Jack. I cannot imagine being able to do this, not at all. I love to watch when I've had the opportunity.
Glass can be so beautiful. I don't think I've seen it worked in person. It looks fascinating but I think it's going on the list of one of those things I'm not likely to do.
Beautiful work. I prefer the very plain ones in the front. I"d love to have been able to watch him . Great shots Jack.
Always interesting to watch. It must take a lot of skill (especially to make a Christmas tree!)
Ahh, no way Jack! I named my siamese kitty after this guy :) Simon Pearce is the coolest!
