DEMO: with Dante Marioni
Sunday 28 January, 3:30pm Bookings
We are thrilled to announce our mystery guest artist is Dante Marioni, one of the foremost internationally acclaimed glassblowers. Marioni burst onto the international glass scene at the age of 19 with a signature style that has been described as the “purest of classical forms executed in glass.” Marioni trained in centuries-old Venetian glassblowing techniques with some of the greatest masters in contemporary glass. His graceful blown-glass vessels are internationally recognized for their intense, vibrant colors and sophisticated classic design.
Marioni has exhibited in major galleries and museums such as the Bellevue Art Museum, Washington and the American Craft Museum, New York. In 1995, he was invited to the Clinton White House as part of an exhibition. His works are in major collections and museums throughout the world including, the New Zealand National Museum of Art (Wellington); the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, DC); and the Yokohama Museum of Art (Japan).
