About this Event

Messums Wiltshire is delighted to welcome the return of pioneering glass artist Dante Marioni to our Long Gallery this December, with a presentation of twelve new and iconic works and a rare opportunity to hear him discuss his work and practice in person on the morning of Saturday 14 December.

Dante Marioni’s signature style has been described as the purest of classical forms executed in glass by an American glassblower. His amphoras, vases, and ewers are derived from Greek and Etruscan prototypes.

Marioni trained in Venetian glassblowing techniques with some of the greatest masters in contemporary glass and continues to push the limits of his craft. After two decades of experimentation, Dante now creates a diverse range of tall, iconic forms with surface treatments such as murrine (mosaic), complex cane patterns and reticello (air bubbles within a net pattern) in an ever-changing array of vibrant colours and is considered to be the world’s leading reticello glass artist.

His work is in public collections worldwide including the V&A, London; New Zealand National Museum, Auckland; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia; National Museum of Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden; Japanese National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Japan; American Museum of Art and Design, New York.
