“A wonderland in crystal.”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Such beautiful creations! Where to look first? From tiny exquisite bud vases to intricate decanters, there is so much artistry in this studio. Luciano spent time with us, explaining the process of creating these works of art. It was difficult, but we chose two wine glasses and a pitcher to remind us of our visit.
We will return to visit this wonderland in crystal and our new friend!
