Coming from a country where health and safety (especially in schools) is getting ever so slightly ridiculous, it always amuses me to see children here doing things that the UK health and safety "gurus" would have a fit about. Take these children for example, from the nearby island of Christiansø, having a great time at their first attempt at glass-blowing at Baltic Sea Glass, a really lovely hand-blown glass studio on Bornholm... It was great watching their designs take shape, and pretty soon the finishing furnace was filled with all manner of balloons, bees, vases and elephants, with no burns or other injuries to speak of!!
This was one of my favourite objects there, as they take their inspiration from what's directly outside their window, you can see why it's called Baltic Sea Glass can't you?
