The Glass Snowboard

This handmade masterpiece took five whole days to construct, cooking and molding at silly hot temperatures.

This glass ‘Capolavoro’ was cut, pressed and tempered to perfection before making it’s debut on the gorgeous mountains of Tuscany.

Signal Snowboards Italian team rider Giorgio “Iannino” Morell got the amazing yet dangerous privilege of shredding the butter at Italy’s Abetone Ski Resort.

What do you think? Will this piece of rideable art slide or shatter?
