FOR THE LOVE OF LINO
February 10 - 21
Italian glass Maestro Lino Tagliapietra will spend two weeks in the Museum of Glass Hot Shop from February 10 through 21. Over the weekend of February 13 and 14, Museum visitors will be treated to awe-inspiring glassmaking demonstrations, as the Maestro and his world-renowned team of artists make the largest vessels of his residency—a feat that requires incredible skill, strength, and seamless teamwork.
Tagliapietra’s Visiting Artist Residency will kick off with a “Tips and Tricks” special presentation in the Hot Shop on February 10 starting at 9 am. Artist John Kiley will provide in-depth commentary about glassmaking techniques while Tagliapietra works. The presentation is open to the public and included with Museum admission.
