Learn about Seguso, Archimede

Archimede Seguso (1909-1999) was apprenticed to his father, Antonio, in the glass-house La Vetreria Artistica Barovier where his father was a partner. Working alongside the designers Vittorio Zecchin and Flavia Poli, Archimede Seguso acquired impressive manual skills at the furnace resulting in a vibrant glass-house. By twenty, Archimede Seguso was a true glass maestro and by 1945 had established his own glass-house. In 1957 he revived his earlier models of animals in opalescent glass with delicate stripes. By birth, by training, by his working life, by the way in which he lives the art of glass, he embodies the qualities that have characterlsed Murano culture and that over the centuries have determined the professional and social prestige of the master glass worker (Rosa Barovier Mentasti, I Vetri Di Archimede Seguso, 2002).
