Beautiful picture, Luko. Do you notice how cameras have an influence in the way one looks, and the way one searches for light and color and framing on photography? I'm also working primarily with digital SLRs these days, and it is surprising to me how the tool discreetly shapes the work.

Happy to see something new. I'm finishing a new series for PH, it's been a long time since last time I've done some flanerie on sites like these.

Default To Dashab: mass production

Without being familiar with the real economic details, I have the feeling that the reputation of Venice as a tourist attraction, which is of course not without negative consequences, and the reputation of Murano as a glass making place will keep the local industry going. My impression as a tourist was in fact that any moderately capable artisan glass blower could do well in Murano. The competition is huge, but the influx of tourists seem to be able to fill all shops even in the shoulder season. It also seems to me that the Chinese mass production and the Murano vetrerias target mostly different markets.
It is very unfortunate that the Czech glass industry, which isn't without a solid tradition, either, is going under. It seems to be the course of history and I am sure that the 45 years of competition-fee communist management haven't helped prepare for a highly competitive market.
