Speaking of "sexy"...... want to visit a "cat house" in Burano??! Here ya have it!

This cat is very hysterical. Last time I visited it, it gave me a full view of it's ass, as it proceeded to NOT want her photo taken, and got up, gave me its' rear view and proceeded to go inside its little house after shotting me a glare of not appreciating the poparazzi invasion.

Lucio's birthday is in April. I like to rub it in his getting older and all .... We do a pot luck party and have a nice chilled casual time of feasting and laughing. We have our students, their travel companions and a handfull of Lucio's best friends join us.





We have occasionally, special guest appearances. Here is Vittorio Costantini, Pino Signoretto and Roberto Dona.

Here's the studio cat, Juda! He and Lucio are complete buds..... Once Juda got lost for days, and by a miracle, Lucio and his good buddy, Diego, found him clear on the other side of the island! So many bridges..... so many different mazes of streets.

Juda is a good studio cat. He stays away, for the most part, when students are there. He mostly cares to be fed, and knows when it's lunchtime and is very boisterous about it. It likes to tenuously weave around these delicate sculptures up on the shelves and sometimes scare the begeezes out of you wondering which will come down first, the cat or the priceless sculpture.

This is new in Lucio's series of gondola pieces... It is GINORMOUS as it is spectacular !

These gondoleries sit in a forged iron gondola..... again, what a masterpiece! You can see it takes up the work table of three work stations!

Hello Ofilia,

I sent you an e-mail, but just in case I had your e-mail address wrong I wanted to try to reach out to you here as well. Are there any spots left in the workshop in April?

Thanks!
Michelle

Hi Michelle! Yes! We have a space for you! This is so cool that it has been a dream of yours to study with an Italian master. Lucio is your man. Studying in his studio is never short of amazing. You'll want to pinch yourself often.

I have sent you the details, and can catch you up on correspondence and get you introduced to our great group.

Looking forward to hearing from you and helping make your dream a reality

Here is a gorgeous "bead" of Lucio's. Very regal in stature! Also, we learn to make displays for our beads or sculptures. It's a very diverse learning experience not to be missed.... Ven con noi! There is still time to jump on board with our group.

A few pictures from a couple of years ago, in case anyone needs additional temptation.

One of Davide Salvadore's amazing vessels in the furnace:



Another cat from Burano -- before he kindly posed for this picture, he was jumping in and out of the fishing boats, obviously looking for scraps.



The view from my room on Murano:

Thanks, Emily! It was so cool running into you at Beadfest in Philly this year. You having your images of your trip from a few years ago, handy on your Ipad, was so cool. I am really pleased how great the experience was for you. I do not exaggerate at all when I say it can be life changing . It's just an overall warm-fuzzy feeling you come away with from this heartfelt experience.

Make the most of every moment while in Murano and Burano and Venice! Live it like it is your Carpe Diem Vetro en Italia quest .........

This is one of those events that no matter how many times I go, I still put it at the top of my bucket list! Can't do 2013, but hoping for 2014!

Ciao, Laurie, that really means a lot to me. I still remember when you were getting cold feet your first trip, and I talked you back into getting over it, and taking the leap. I have lost track of all your trips now! It's a good thing.....
