The Maestro began working on this idea in 1968, and explains that the technique took nearly twenty years to perfect. He has called it “the biggest technical challenge” of his career. Using a play on the Italian process incalmo, which combines separate vessels to create bands of color, Lino instead fuses together two bubbles of glass: a feat requiring intense precision and a deep understanding of the material itself.

Dream of a Long Winter

Maestro Tagliapietra introduced a new panel series that was designed and produced in Murano, Italy, over the course of 2020-2021. To fight the pandemic and lockdown Lino decided to dedicate all of his time to very complex projects he never had enough time to give my full attention to. After a long year and a half of trials and hard work this was his ultimate innovation: Dream of a Long Winter.

Angel Tear

The Angel Tear series has a long history - its evolution has lasted nearly 20 years. The Maestro continues to be drawn to this form because it allows him to explore different techniques - murrini, cold-working, and cane on one multi-faced vessel.

Maestro Tagliapietra has visited Japan a number of times, and remains fascinated by the culture and landscape of this captivating country. Reflecting on this particular series, Lino comments that his travels in Japan taught him that “simplicity is not cheap. It is complicated to make a simple design refined.”

Lino first experimented with works of this type during a visit to Brazil, and named these large wall-mounted shapes after the Portuguese word for “butterfly.”

Corning Final Blow | Dinosaur

The Dinosaur series represents the drama of glassblowing. Lino stretches and curves the neck of the vessel in the last moments of the glassblowing process - a feat that requires the precision and attention of the entire glassblowing team. This was one of the final pieces the Maestro blew at CMog in May of 2022.

In the Borneo series, Lino applies long thin canes to the exterior surface of the glass, which interrupts the internal swirl of cane within the vessel itself. Lino wanted to evoke the idea of a bamboo forest, and the movement the plants have when blowing gently in the wind.

This intricate artwork requires multiple layers of delicately twisted canes that are grouped together and stretched to create long bands of looped glass. The name Asola refers to a type of knot used in tying fishing reels, which Lino tried to emulate in his manipulation of the canes.

This artwork is composed exclusively of Florencia murrina, created by layering and folding together different colors of flat ribbon cane. This series is named for the fleur-de-lis symbol that represents the city of Florence.

Fenice, or “phoenix” in English, are named for La Fenice theatre in Venice - a historic building that has burned down and been rebuilt three times throughout its long history. An homage to his hometown, these artworks gracefully rise and curve into delicately tapered necks.
