The Maestro of Glass, Lino Tagliapietra, is coming to Istanbul in April in honor of the Glass Furnace’s 10th anniversary. The artist, crowned a maestro while he was merely 21 years old, will host 12 glass-blowing demonstrations for Glass Furnace guests on April 21-27.
Glass makers, aspiring artists and people who love the art from all corners of the globe will be joined at the Glass Furnace by world famous glass artist Dante Marioni and Seattle glass artist Janusz Pozniak, who will assist Tagliapietra in his demonstrations.
Known as the pioneer of contemporary glass art, Tagliapietra is also acknowledged as the person who introduced the art form to the U.S. The maestro will stage a new feat at the Glass Furnace during his April 21-27 appearance.
Tagliapietra will create unique works of art by using the same form but different design, pushing the boundaries of glass with his assistants in a historic week that will inspire all spectators. We will share with you photos of the works and details of 12 fascinating shows after the event.
