Here are a few leads for you:
- This site has lots of information on Murano glassblowers, including a list of glass artists/showrooms and other information.
- One of our librarians suggested looking through the Glass Arts Society membership directory. While not all glass artists are members, this might give you a few names: http://www.glassart.org/cgi/page.cgi?_id=1428
- Here are a few articles about seeing glassblowing on Murano: Visiting the Glass-Blowing Workshops in Murano, Italy, Venice tip: Free glass blowing demonstrations on Murano, and Venice Day Trip: Murano Island. Although these are geared towards tourists, they might give you a few places to contact.
- I spoke with one of our glassblowers in the Studio, and he said "Most of the folks on Murano and in Venice who want to be found by the general public, will be found . . . that's how it works over there."
