Artist of the moment……..Glass Artist Lino Tagliapietra

 

 

Lino Tagliapietra is an Italian master glass artist. Lino Tagliapietra was born in Murano, Italy in the year 1934. This area of the country is famous for producing glass since the year 1300.

When the artist was twelve years old he became an apprentice to another master glass artist named Archimede Seguso. Tagliapietra was allowed to work with glass himself at the age of fourteen.

This is my favorite clip of the day! We see the two most famous glass artists in the world, Dale Chihuly and Lino Tagliapietra. The two came together to share the knowledge of their favorite medium:

After many years of the learning the craft through his master and also by visiting the Venice Biennials and the Murano Museum of Glass, the Tagliapietra was given the title of glass master when he was 25 years old.

The artist enjoys mixing his own colors.
