DANTE MARIONI: CLASSICAL FORMS REINTERPRETED IN GLASS
Dante Marioni uses the medium of glass to imaginatively reinterpret Greek and Etruscan amphoras, vases, and ewers. Trained in centuries-old Venetian glassblowing techniques with some of the greatest masters in contemporary glass, Marioni has since developed his own unique signature style of two-color, monumental forms. For Marioni, making objects is about the art of glassblowing rather than the creation of glass art: the process rather than the result. In his lecture, Marioni will discuss his evolving relationship with and exploration of glass as well as his most recent work prioritizing color and pattern.
