Director and Founder of Venice Glass & Arts
What is Lampwork for me?
Venetian glass is first of all a PASSION, ART and TRADITION. I grew up watching my father, seated at his work table, holding glass canes in his hands and creating every kind of glass animal imaginable. ‘This is a cat’ I would say when he began shaping something and he would reply ‘you’re right!’. ‘This is a dog”…’yes, it is’. I was always right but only years later did I realise that he was such a great Glass Master that he was able to change whatever he was making to suit my response. He was and he still is a real Master of Glass – ‘Mastro Vetraio’.
