The course is designed to make students know, learn and reproduce small glass objects (with coefficient of expansion 104 Murano glass) by using the lampworking (or flameworking) technique.
Mauro Vianello lives in Murano. He began his craft of handwork glass at a young age in one of the most renowned glasswork shops of Murano. His dearest friend Vanni (who is skilful in the handcraft of glass by lampworking) taught him the techniques of hand crafting which allowed him to explore his creativity. After developing a familiarity and talent with this kind of craft, he decided to start his own workshop in the heart of Venice. This project was achieved a few years later once he found a convenient place where he could make himself a name. MV ' s creations can be admired after long periods of study and project during which these pieces are transformed from a simple drawing into such sophisticated handcraft products that in most cases remain unique and unrepeatable. His studio now is near Campo San Cassan in Calle dei Morti (Sestiere of Santa Croce) 2251, 7 minutes from Rialto bridge.
