Discover the art of glass blowing and exceptional glass sculptures by glassmith Zanetti Murano
Oscar Zanetti was born in Murano in 1961. One of his ancestors, Abbott Zanetti, was the founder of the Museum of Glass and opened the Glass School in the 19th century. Oscar began working with glass at the age of 14 while attending the local art high school. He started out as an assistant or "serventino" and perfected his technique at some of the most prestigious Murano glass ateliers, including Venini and La Murrina, before joining the family workshop. His preference for natural subjects is reflected in his collection. Discover more on Artemest.com
