Contenuto della pagina

The master glassmaker Giuliano Ballarin was born in Murano on 15 March 1942 to a family whose glass art tradition has been handed down from generation to generation since the 15th century. He approached the world of glass at a very early age, showing a marked capacity for learning supported by a sharp intelligence and lively curiosity, characteristics that, along with a remarkable artistic sensitivity, allowed him to rapidly assimilate the techniques and secrets of the best master glassmakers of the time, such as Carrara Albino, Martinuzzi Francesco and Carlo Tosi ‘Caramea’. On achieving his artistic independence he opened his own glass works where, successfully combining new and old techniques and driven by the desire to constantly excel, he develops increasingly refined models and forms, attaining an artistic level that is admired by master glassmakers in Italy and around the world.
