DescriptionItalian School (20th Century)
An Art Glass Vase
15-1/2 inches (39.4 cm) high
Lino Tagliapietra is an Italian glass artist born in 1934 on the Italian island of Murano. Murano, an island whose history of glass dates back to 1291, provided Lino with the perfect educational environment to hone his craft. At the age of 12, Lino was apprenticed by the glass maestro Archimede Seguso. Nine years later, at age 21, he himself had earned the rank of maestro. For the next 25 years, he worked in association with several of Murano's top glass factories. Lino's influence to the American art glass studio movement is primarily attributed to his friend Dale Chihuly.
In 1979, Lino came to the United States to teach at the Pilchuck Glass Studio in Washington. This marked the beginning of knowledge sharing among the American glass artists and the Italian maestros, who in the past had guarded their techniques as valuable trade secrets.The first exhibition to honor his work, Lino Tagliapietra in Retrospect: A Modern Renaissance in Italian Glass is presently being shown at the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C. It will also appear at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia, the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California, and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
