Dante Marioni

Dante Marioni (b.1964) ‘Blue and Black Leaf Vessel’, 2018

Blown glass
H56 x W25cm

Dante Marioni (b. 1964) burst onto the international glass scene aged nineteen, becoming famous for his sophisticated glass objects, which evoke the rich tradition of classical Mediterranean pottery and bronzes. Marioni has training in Venetian glassblowing techniques with some of the greatest masters in contemporary glass. The son of American studio glass pioneer Paul Marioni, Dante was raised in a family of artists, one that included two well-known uncles: painter Joseph Marioni and conceptual artist Tom Marioni.

For Marioni, making objects is about the art of glass blowing rather than the creation of glass art: the process rather than the result. Marioni’s elegant works are the brilliant record of his on-going relationship with and exploration of his material. This experimental, almost mindful method of working with glass is key to success: taking immense skill in order to work with molten liquid in the literal ‘heat of the moment’.
