Luce Artist Biography

While studying art history and ceramics at the University of Siena, Louis Sclafani took a field trip to the island of Murano and obtained a summer job working in glass. He went on to complete a three-year apprenticeship with glass maestro Loredano Rosin. With Loredano and his brother Dino Rosin, Sclafani rediscovered the recipe for producing Calcedonia, a glass produced in Venice in the fifteenth century. In Calcedonia, the multicolored stripes resulting from a chemical reaction between silver and glass imitate the natural striations of agate.
