The Masters of Glass at work: the time to cut ...

The details are executed with the typical instruments of glass art from Murano:
borselle (pliers of various sizes and shapes, which are essential for cutting,
pinch and shape the object in every detail), tagianti (special scissors for cutting the hot glass) ,
spatulas and compasses (for the correct adjustment of the diameter).

The Island of the Glass Art: Murano Is.(Venezia)
