Red Group (3 vessels)

  • Dante Marioni, Red Group (3 vessels), 1995, blown glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the James Renwick Alliance, 1995.48A-C

Luce Center Label

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.

Luce Object Quote

“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
