"Venini: Masterpieces of Italian Design"
2001-11-15 until 2002-02-17
Corning Museum of Glass
Corning, NY, USA

The Corning Museum of Glass, home to the world’s most comprehensive collection of glass, presents an exhibition featuring art glass designed and produced by the historic firm of Venini in Murano, Italy, entitled Venini: Masterpieces of Italian Design from The Steinberg Foundation in Liechtenstein.

Internationally recognized for its progressive design policies, Venini was the first glasshouse in Italy, and among the few in the world, to expand the parameters of art glass manufacture.

By extending invitations to artists and architects to work with their craftsmen, glass developed a new shape, look and expression. Creating designs for limited rather than mass production, Venini took advantage of Murano’s historic tradition of small, barely mechanized factories where all manufacturing processes were still performed by hand.
