designer, has had a significant influence on glassmaking
worldwide. While insular and secretive attitudes have marked the
Muranese glass industry for centuries, he has always encouraged the

translate concepts into hot glass that would be impossible without his
extraordinary abilities..."-- Suzanne K. Frantz, Curator of 20th
