From the Publisher: "Tagliapietra became the first Murano glass artist to experience widespread international recognition, particularly in the United States. He combines techniques that are rooted in the thousand-year-old Venetian glassmaking tradition and brings fresh and creative perspectives to art in glass. Tagliapietra's work stands within the grandest tradition of the decorative arts, an honored discipline of unabashed beauty and exquisite craftsmanship."
