Table of Contents
While working in a classic tradition inspierd by the art of ancient and Renaissance Italy, Marioni has invented fresh forms and color combinations that carry the art forward into a new millennium. This stunning volume brilliantly captures the beauty of Marioni's art.
DANTE MARIONI is a Seattle artist whose graceful, blown-glass vessels are internationally recognized for their vibrant color and classic design. Marioni has a love and an enduring respect for the process of glassblowing, a technique developed by ancient glassmakers during the first century B.C. For Marioni, making objects is about the art of glassblowing rather than the creation of glass art, the process rather than the result. His elegant works are the radiant record of his ongoing relationship with this material.
Through the process of making his vessels -- which are inspired by forms found in the ancient and Renaissance art of Italy -- Marioni has entered a centuries-long artistic conversation about classical design, proportion, and aesthetics that dates back to the first Roman emperors who looked at Greek art and to the first Renaissance artists who rediscovered classical antiquity. Confident in the strength of his vision and in his mastery of a demanding medium, Marioni has unselfconsciously and studiously pursued his own interpretation of classical design, resulting in forms and colors in glass that are inventive, fresh, and tradition-breaking. Marioni's distinctive glass vessels are found in the collections of art museums, corporations, and private collectors worldwide.
