A Modern Christmas Tree...Beautifully Artistic

Received this in an email today, could only imagine how lovely it must look in real life with the light glowing through the Murano glass tubes.

Venice 's Murano Island renowned throughout the world for its quality glasswork is home to the tallest glass tree in the world. Sculpted by master glass blower Simone Cenedese, the artistic Christmas tree is a modern reflection of the holiday season.


  1. I bet that was gorgeous! thanks for posting , ; ) Laura

  2. This is fabulous! I bet it looks amazing lit up! Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind words about my cards. Please visit again soon.

  3. Wow.. that is very cool looking indeed! Must look gorgeous in person all lit up. :)

  4. Oh How Cute :) They are amazing what they can do with glass. :)

    I remember watching a show about Chihuly going there to work with them to make one of his glass sculpture :)

    I am lucky to have a small Murano necklace my Mother in Law bought for me 20 + years ago, it is red and I love to wear it over the holidays :)

    Have a wonderful evening,

    regards, T.

  5. That's amazing! I wish I could see it in person.

  6. Thank you for all your comments.
    When I first saw the photo of this tree I could not take my eyes off of it and soon found myself dreaming about how nice it would look in my living room. Of course I'm sure it would cost about as much as a small house, so I'll just have to make due with my little artificial, 4 ft. tall, tabletop tree...hey it's not Murano glass but it does have fiber optics. LOL

  7. Wow that's really funky! Matt & I were looking to do something kind of different this year and still haven't purchased anything yet. This would certainly do the trick.


Nothing makes me happier than to hear from those who have dropped by my blog for a visit. I love hearing from you.
