The TVGW Tours by Nexa for Sunday 12 September focus on the sculptures that are one of the symbols of Murano art glass. The ability to work with large masses of molten glass is in fact one of the most outstanding features of the glass masters together with their absolute originality.
Our guide will introduce you to two of Murano's most celebrated artists. The first stop will be the glass studio of Lino Tagliapietra, who in his long career has experimented with the most refined techniques and has exhibited his works in the world's most prestigious museums. Recognized as one of the most prominent interpreters of contemporary glass, Tagliapietra investigates the different possibilities of the material through the recurrent use of glass canes that he composes himself according to singular chromatic patterns, creating highly original and evocative works.
The tour will continue with the glass studio of Pino Signoretto, who has developed a universally acknowledged mastery in hot glass sculpture. Through the words of his son Davide we will have the opportunity to see one of his creations to fully understand his incredible expertise, which suggests there are no limits to his creativity.
