"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
Text reads: This fresco from the sixteenth century depicts the "miracle of the cup", one of the miracles of Saint Anthony of Padova. The glass, which fell from the great heights of the bell tower, not only survived the fall, but broke the pavement. Many people were in the square to witness the event.
