Why is Murano Glass Expensive and Rare?

By News and Views

According to a recent Washington Post article, the island of Murano is having trouble keeping their furnaces going due to the increase in the cost of fuel. The furnaces cannot be turned on and off because the cost to restart them is very high. They burn 24 hours a day—they only shut down in August for maintenance. If Murano has fewer operational furnaces, they will produce less art glass, and eventually glass makers will close shop. The remaining makers will raise prices to offset the huge increase that fuel has incurred lately. Switching to alternative fuel is a good option for the future, but that will take massive investment and will take a very long time to make the conversions.

Ray Greenport Website Now Has 2,000 Items

By News and Views

We have reached a milestone. Our website now has 2,000 items and is growing every day. Not all of these items are for sale. When an item sells, we move it to an archive titled “Sold.” This provides our audience with a deep database of the types of items we like. Since every item has a detailed caption, this archive also provides students and researchers a place to fact check information about Mid-Century Modern objects. We try very hard to provide accurate information and high quality photos for this purpose. We photograph every object in several views and always provide a ruler in the photo to offer size information. Most people (70% of Google searches) find us by keyword searching internet images, not text. Interesting. We had over 50,000 page views last month (May 2021).

Our Website is Open 24/7

By News and Views

Even though the worldwide pandemic has closed our storefront temporarily, our web store is open 24/7 and we’re shipping every day. We’re practicing antiseptic packaging, and wear gloves all day. Better safe than sorry. Stay calm and wash your hands. We’ll re-open as soon as the health department allows it. If you ordered framed art and want to pick it up at the shop, or if you want to see a piece in real life, text me at 917-848-4729. We’ll make arrangements. We’re actually in the shop every day—just not open to the public.
