Giacomo Barbini is a master grinder of exceptional skill and refinement in the cold finishing of Venetian blown glass. Over his long career, spent mainly in the Venini and Anfora glassworks, he managed to interpret the design requirements of artists and designers.
Since retiring he has continued to offer consultancy to professionals, artists and also young apprentices.

Cristiano Bianchin, pupil of Emilio Vedova at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia and in the group of young artists selected by the Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa, approached glass in 1992 considering it one of the expressive media suited to his poetics. His formal research is expressed through the use of extremely refined glass techniques for works in which the glass coexists with other materials, giving extremely original and highly personal results.

Monica Guggisberg and Philip Baldwin are emblematic of the international nature of glass art. They developed their passion for glass in the studio of Wilke Adolfsson and Ann Wolff in Sweden, but looked closely at the glass techniques of Murano, an island to which they still make reference for the cold finishing of their pieces. They share the work of design and production of their works, distinguished by a very original contemporary quality and ranging from the vase to the installation conceived for a specific architectural space.
