Enchanted Redwood

Fused panels allow Lino to “paint” with glass. He surrounds himself with the cane, murrine, and rods and works in the spur of the moment to create his panels. This particular fused panel was inspired by the redwood forests of Northern California, and has been mounted in an LED backlit frame in order to augment the colors and patterns within the glass.

Lino began the Endeavor series in the late 1980s, using molds to create small and slender boats. Over the next 10 years, Tagliapietra continued to experiment with Endeavor, eventually achieving the meter-long vessels that compose the series today.

Each swirl of cane in the Kira is an individually blown vessel, which are cooled and grouped together before being picked up like murrini by a sphere of clear glass. Lino highlights the patterns of this work with complimentary engraving.

The Mandara series are primarily closed-form vessels whose surfaces have been heavily engraved in a variety of patterns. In conceiving these works, Lino reflected on the decorative mandala drawings of the Bhuddist religion, whose intricate and geometric designs encourage meditation and focus. The Maestro similarly finds meditation and reflection in the process of glassblowing.

Often, Lino’s series reimagine faraway destinations - combining bright colors and patterns to evoke exotic images and cultures. Lino explains that these series, like the Maracaibo, make him think of his childhood in which “we had more time and fantasy to fancy about distant countries.”

These stoic pieces are named for the Makah Tribe which hails from the Northwesternmost tip of Washington State. Inspired by the tribe’s culture, Lino sought to make artworks that were equally intricate and layered as a tribute to the Makah’s rich history.

Lino took inspiration for these artworks from photographs of space - the images of swirling stars and faraway galaxies fueled his imagination and motivated him to craft murrine that would create similar effects.

The Oca begin similarly to Dinosaurs: building up layers of glass and shaping the base while heating and cooling to maintain the temperature. However, rather than pull a long neck, Lino must keep the bubble near the top of the glass for the Oca’s “head”, and then carefully squeeze the “neck” to be very narrow. This is a very delicate process that results in the graceful and slender Oca.

The Maestro creates the Maui series’ striking colors using exclusively cane in several layers of incalmo. These series are heavily engraved in order to add to their atmosphere and depth, and are named for Hawaii’s second-largest island.

The Ostuni are multi-dimensional vessels with forms that twist and turn. Lino combines intricately intertwined canes, clear glass, and dramatic coldworking to create these captivating works.
