BOSTON METRO THURSDAY JULY 17, 2008 "It's often said that Boston is a city of neighborhoods...

DENEBOLA FEB 10, 2010 Ever since she viewed a glassblowing demonstration at the age of six, junior Camille Brugnara has made glasswork an integral part of her life. She attended a glassblowing class at Diablo Glass School and can often be found in the glass room working on new pieces.
"What really appeals to me is the fact that I can make beautiful pieces, and it's my own form of therapy. It allows me to see that I am really good at something, and I feel like all my problems go away the second I enter the studio." she said.
