Glass Master from Murano

Murano Glass is world renown for the quality of its glass and especially for the ability of the glass masters.

The art of the Murano Glass can dated back to the 16th century when the glass production was moved from Venice to the island of Murano.

Nirvano Voltolina was born in Murano in 1951 and he started to work in his first furnace when he was just 11 years old. Nirvano tells that since he was a child he has always looked with respect and admiration his glass masters. During very long hours, seated on the “scagno” (Venetian word for bench) in which waited to be called to work, he tried to get as much secrets as he could.

Nowadays, Nirvano is one of the not many glass masters living in Italy, compared to the past when there was constantly a generational exchange. His eyes and particularly in his hand is locked  years and years of experience in this form of art.

Even if he worked most of his career in artistic glass, lampworking has been and it will always be his biggest passion. Nirvano cannot spend a day without handling his glass sticks and a orchestra director “dirge” the orchestra, his movements make become live unique and unrepeatable glass artworks, simply because not reproducible are his feelings and sensation transfer in each one of his artworks.
