Visiting Artist Instructor: Davide Fuin Prerequisites: intermediate experience required Bio: Born in 1962 on Murano, Fuin still lives and works on the island. Considered one of the most skilled masters of the last 30 years, he has collaborated with Italy's famous glass houses including Venini, Toso, Pauly, Salviati, Elite, and De Majo, as well as with many international artists and designers. Every year Fuin spends several weeks teaching at art schools and studios around the world, including The Studio at CMOG. His work can be found in major galleries as well as private and museum collections in Europe, the United States, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, EAU, and Australia.Known widely as the crème de la crème, Fuin's work defines classic Venetian glass. In 2000, he began producing a collection of goblets, vessels, and traditional Venetian baskets in avventurina glass. His goal was to open new markets and appeal to a more exclusive clientele. The number of pieces and the preciousness of the sparkling, seemingly copper-infused glass elevates this body of work beyond the functional. Fuin's avventurina collection makes an artistic statement about traditional technique and the unimaginable beauty possible only at the hand of a true maestro.
