The Amazing Beauty of Murano glass

We recently received a shipment of Murano glass creations by Maestro Imperio Rossi and I have been working on adding them to the database. One of the steps involves taking photos and since Emi is swamped with the new Campomaggi bags that we are adding, I’m having to dig deep to find some photographic skills somewhere in my arsenal.

Unfortunately, I already got proof that I need to keep on digging: I just compared one of the new Christmas ornament photos I took to one that Emi had taken months ago of the NATALE and the difference is night and day. Take a look:

The FESTE Murano glass Christmas ornament

The NATALE Christmas Ornament. Emi took this photo.

Just looking at the two pictures above is not enough. Click on both links and, when you are viewing each product page, click on the product picture: it will be expanded. The difference in quality between the two photos makes my jaw drop a little.

And that is what caused me to want to write this post: my jaw has been dropping all day long. The beauty of these Murano glass pieces is captivating, to say the least. I hope that I can be done by tomorrow.
