Artwork Description

Dante Marioni creates glass pieces that express his love for color and symmetry. He trained with the Italian glass maestro Lino Tagliapietra, who taught him the Venetian tradition of elegant shapes and rich colors. Marioni often displays his vessels in groups, so that the pieces complement and enhance one another.

“I just use a solid wad of color to create a field. My work has never been about surface embellishment.” Dante Marioni, Glass Focus, 1999
