“My challenge: being able to combine creativity and originality with an ancient method, bringing modernity and novelty, but without forgetting the historical roots on which Murano glass is based”
This is the central statement of the interview given by Fabio Fornasier to the prestigious Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte Foundation, which highlights the artisan, artistic and innovative skills of the master glassmaker of Murano Gallery LUAB 4.0.
Fornasier tells the Foundation, which manages the Art Crafts for a rediscovery of the artistic craftsmanship value, how his profession as a master glassmaker was born, from his beginnings at his father’s side at the age of 16: a path rooted in the millennial tradition of Murano glass and open to a contemporary innovation.
At a time like today, dominated by digital technologies, Fornasier’s invitation to young people is to dedicate their time to glass, an ancient and creative craft that always rewards with great artistic and economic satisfactions.
