Lino Tagliapietra
Arte del Vetro Senza Frontiere: Glass Art Without Borders

Lino Tagliapietra

From Venice to Seattle and everywhere in between, Italian glass artist Lino Tagliapietra–“often hailed as the world’s greatest glassblower”–creates works that are inspiring, creative, and filled with his trademark personal flair. A Master glassmaker since age 21, Tagliapietra has “generously shared traditional Venetian techniques” with American glassblowers (including our own Dale Chihuly) for years. He’ll offer an inside look at these and other techniques in a discussion of his personal glassblowing style, inspirations, and passion. Learn about the man behind the glass–and get a glimpse at what makes a “Maestro.”
