The full programme will be launched in June, in the meantime explore some of the forum demo highlights:

Our hot shop demo artists include Seattle glass artist, Dante Marioni (USA), who will also be delivering the keynote speech; Dante continues to push the limits of his craft. Using innovative and complex cane patterns on flawlessly crafted forms, Marioni successfully draws our attention to the optics and elegance of his contemporary glass sculptures.

Inspired by aspects of popular culture, Fredrik Nielsen (Sweden) assimilates graffiti, music, videos and performance within his practice as a glass artist creating large-scale works that challenge existing hierarchies within art and contemporary craft.

Nicola Moretti (Italy) fifth generation Murano master is a prolific designer who combines technical tradition with modernity exploring combination of computational design, 3D printing and fused glass mould casting using murrine.
