About

Italian design meets Dutch design in this fantastic optical illusion object.
This glass object represents the fascinating collaboration between two of world's most eminent glass artists. A.D. Copier, great Dutch glass designer, and Italian glass maestro Lino Tagliapietra, were assisted by glass artist Bernard Heesen in creating this fabulous piece. It is a one-off piece designed in 1990 and manufactured at Oude Horn, Acquoy, the Netherlands. Signed by all cooperating artists and numbered at the bottom. Measure: Height ca. 32 cm.

Lino Tagliapietra (1934) was born in Murano, centuries-old center for Venetian glassmaking. At the age of eleven, he was apprenticed to the glass studio of the Muranese master Archimede Seguso and achieved the rank of master by age twenty-one. He later worked as glassblower and designer at other glass studios, including Galliano Ferro, Venini, La Murrina and Effetre International.

His collaboration with the Dutch glass designer A.D. Copier had a profound impact on his work. Copier changed his view of glass as a medium for art. In a dedication to Copier, Tagliapietra said, "What did I learn from him? Not any technical skills, but more importantly, the way to see and think about glass objects as works of art."

This stunning glass object is exhibited in the National Glass Museum Leerdam, where it is an important piece of the current exhibition:
Cities of Glass - Venetië, Nový Bor, Leerdam
Three world famous centres of glass, each with their own characteristic style, (9 July 2017-31 December 2017).
