Q: Which city in the world do you think produces more glass blowers and sells more blown glass in shops than anywhere else in the world? A: Seattle, USA. Contrary to popular opinion, it is not Murano in Venice, and this may have something to do with the fact that Seattle is home to the glass blowing studio of one of the most internationally renowned glass artists and his team of almost 100 craftsmen - Dale Chihuly.
