Lino Tagliapietra's New Aventurine Series

These small scale hand blown art glass pieces from Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra are called his "Aventurine Series". The color is a muted antique gold that he gets from a secret source.

The finished piece is comprised of many similar vertical forms that are reminiscent of Middle Eastern glass and metal work.

Mr. Tagliapietra is also working with mixed media; using blown forms with fusing. This will be an entirely different approach than the large blown works he is most famous for to date.

You can read more about Lino Tagliapietra in an April 4th, 2011 interview by The Glass Art Quarterly Blog.
