The prize giving ceremony for the Glass in Venice Prize and the Riedel Award 2015 took place at the Istituto Veneto on Tuesday 15 September in the presence of:
Gherardo Ortalli, president of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti
Gabriella Belli, director of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia
Georg J. Riedel, president of Riedel Crystal
Rosa Barovier, glass historian
and the prize winning artists.

The judging committee for the Glass in Venice prize has proclaimed the winners of the 2015 awards as among those who best express the art of glass: Davide Fuin, for his expert use of Murano techniques, and Maria Grazia Rosin, for her original artistic works.
The prize was awarded to Davide Fuin for his particular links with the tradition and production techniques typical of Murano, being an excellent glass master who excels in his ability to make blown items according to Murano tradition, highlighting especially the techniques of reticello and retortoli filigree, incalmo and aventurine.
The prize was awarded to the internationally recognised artist Maria Grazia Rosin for her works distinguished by an extremely original imprint: playful installations in combinations of sound and light that are absolutely contemporary, made with traditional Murano techniques in association with the best glass masters.

Works of award-winning artists were exhibited in the atrium of Palazzo Loredan.
15 september - 13 october 2015
All days from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.
Free Entrance

The members of the Commission are Rosa Barovier, glass historian; Gabriella Belli, director of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia; Sandro Franchini, chancellor emeritus of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti; Sandro Pezzoli, collector; Chiara Squarcina, director of the Museo del Vetro, Murano.

The commission also decided to award a special career prize to Livio Seguso, which was  presented at a ceremony on 30th of October, , as recognition of the very high quality of his creations in which he innovatively elevates glass, often combining it with other materials, and his promotion of glass art around the world. An artist of international fame, he has been a pioneer since the 1970s in the use of glass as an expressive medium for art. He continues his creative work with always new proposals.

Davide Fuin
Davide Fuin grew up around glass on Murano, often accompanying his father to his job at Barovier & Toso. Although he was too young to actually work, he was fascinated by the activity and the interactions between the glassblowers. When he was fifteen, he left high school and, as was required at that time, he went to work at a glass factory.

In 1992, she was among the winners in a competition organized by Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice to discover new potential talent in glass art.
