Davide Salvadore

Salvadore’s Work is an image of Contemporary Murano. His signature Murrinas and Incalmo (grafting) are highlighted by intricate designs using Incisura and Battuto (“Cold Work"). In his masterpiece, Fire Dance (right ), he revisits Glass Beads techniques he learned from his mother. With these technical  skills, and the extreme appeal of his sculptures Davide is emerging as one of the most important Glass Masters of Murano.
To have reached this clout in the World Capital of Glass, is insuring him a position on the Olympus of Glass Art.

Highlights from his Resume    

Born in Murano in 1953, Davide is a descendent from a family of Glassworkers. He started at a very early age he began following his grandfather, then started working in the big furnaces of Murano. In 1978 he began producing lamp-worked beads in his mother's jewelry studio. Subsequently the recognition of his talent and his carrier steadly grew in Italy and abroad.
