The glass artistry of glassblowers at La Verrerie de Biot in Biot in Provence, France in Europe.

Biot is a small village in Provence, France which once produced earthenware vessels for wine and oil. When metal replaced the pottery the industry died out, but other crafts became popular especially glassblowing.This glass artistry can be seen in demonstrations at any of the glassworks in Biot in Provence, one of the largest of these glassworks is La Verrerie de Biot located on chemin des Combes. Visitors to La Verrerie de Biot are able to watch the glassblowers at work or take a guided tour of the Eco-musee du Verre in Biot.The lovely glass, known as 'verre bulle' that is hand-blown at La Verrerie de Biot in Provence, France, and at the other glassworks in Biot, is a transparent glass (either clear or coloured) with small bubbles running through it.After watching the creation of this glass artistry at La Verrerie de Biot, visitors can take in the art galleries, have a meal at the restaurant and purchase a piece of this exquisite glass. ... continue below the picture...
