Collection Exhibition Venetian glass and contemporary artists

In this Collection Exhibition, we introduce works of the artists who display their unique expressions while incorporating the technique of Venetian glass including Lino Tagliapietra’s works that we newly added to our collection in 2020.

Among glass artists who produce their works using the glassblowing technique are not a few who learn the traditional technique of Venetian glass. They form their works by utilizing the soft movement of molten glass while sometimes rendering delicate patterns and decorations through the sophisticated blowing technique. The attitude of pursuing their own expressions as they learn a vast amount of knowledge and history of Venetian glass can be seen among artists, firstly Tagliapietra who refined his skills in Murano, the home of Venetian glass, and Dale Chihuly, Fujita Kyohei, Ohira Yoichi who made their works together with Venetian glass makers as well as Dante Marioni, Nick Mount, Konishi Ushio, Enami Fujiko and Yasuda Taizo who are actively working at present. Through the works of the artists who established their individual expressions, we aim to unveil various representations that spread along the axis of the Venetian glass method.
