Portrait of a Glassblower

Waterford, a seaport in southeast Ireland, is the country’s oldest city. It was founded by Vikings in 914 A.D. and parts of its ancient city wall still remain. Famed glass manufacturer Waterford Crystal began there in 1783. We enjoyed a tour of the company’s facility located near the historic district. As we explored more of the city, we noticed this street portrait of a Glassblower embedded in the wall. Seemed appropriate for both the challenges “travel” and “portrait”.
