Michele Burato

 
Contenuto della pagina

Born in Venice in 1957, Michele first approached the legendary Italian Glass industry as a collector and a dealer. From 1980 to 1995 he cultivated an international reputation as an expert in the field of nineteenth and twentieth-century Italian glass.
In 1988, Burato considered this material from a new angle, fusing slices of vintage canes he had acquired from various Murano furnaces. Burato used a small household kiln to create flat glass panels embedded with vintage murrine and eventually adapted these methods to three-dimensional forms. At Anfora Furnace, he found the progressive environment he required to experiment with methods and materials outside firmly routed Venetian customs.
While thoroughly acquainted with tradition, Michele Burato refuses to be limited by it. Mr Burato's works are represented in many private collections in the Museo Vetrario di Murano, Venice, in the Corning Museum of Glass, N.Y. and in the Museum of arts and design, New York NY.
