Dante Marioni is my glass blower crush :-) He is an American glass artist who lives in Seattle. He started working in glass at the age of 15. Dante is a well known and respected artist who has shown his work all over the world and is known for his mastery in Venetian glassblowing techniques. I have seen his vessels described as "traditional becomes modern" and thats pretty much the truth. Bold colors, curvy features, tall elegance....I likey!
