Lino Tagliapietra at The Studio: Making "Africa"

David Whitehouse was intrigued by contemporary artists with a link to history. He especially admired the talents of his treasured friend, Lino Tagliapietra. One of the Studio Glass Movement giants, Tagliapietra creates work rooted in Venetian tradition, but innovative in style and depth. This is a unique opportunity to watch Tagliapietra create original work in honor of his dear friend.

This glassmaking demonstration was part of A Life in Archaeology and Glass: Honoring David Whitehouse (1941-2013), a seminar honoring the life and work of our former executive director and friend David Whitehouse, to celebrate his scholarship in glass, ceramics, and archaeology.
