How did your passion for glass begin?
I met and focused on appropriate craft of glassmaking a few years ago, when I moved to Venice. To love glass you must learn to know it, know its thousand alchemies, study its history and the art of glass great masters and finally, relate to the skilled artisans like "perlere" and "impiraresse".
Your creations also suggest design!
Design is part of my professional vision and life, for me it's synonymous of space and volume harmony.
Your lamps are unique and precious…
Yes, my lamps are unique because I produce them using elements made by the great glass designer. They are art pieces, real sculpture with with reflections of changing colors.
Why visit Murano?
Because only in Murano you can feel the energy of fire and therefore of glass. Here you can sense the so-called "passage of light", a precious gift for everyone.
