The Artists' creativity for The ABC of Glass Art exhibit seems boundless. Alison's passion towards Italy led her to study the language, and while doing that she created the Italian Lessons. It is a Garden where the names of the Animals' names are in Italian. Click on this bookmark for detailed views of the ABC in the Italian Lessons (below).
