Emilio Santini is one of the most widely recognized names in flameworking. Born in Murano into a family with 600 years of glassworking tradition to its name, Emilio is a class favorite for teaching both new and advanced students all over the world. Recently, in his own work, he has begun to combine his flameworking talent with furnace blown and cast work.

These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).
