Blu-Ray + Book
Little did Lino Tagliapietra know as a boy growing up in the working-class world of Murano outside Venice that he would one day be an artist-let alone, an artist many consider to be the greatest glass blower in history. Nor could he have seen that his journey would take him across continents, cultures, oceans, decades. Like glass itself, Lino's life has taken shape in surprising and extraordinary ways. From an island in Italy to a mountain top in the Pacific Northwest, from chandeliers and goblets to sculptures, installations and one-of-a-kind vessels, The Making of a Maestro traces Lino's life, artistry, passion, and influence on a generation of glass artists worldwide.
