The Glass Art Department at Accademia Riaci in Florence, Italy considers glass to be an artist’s material having remarkable and complex expressive range, as well as a studio discipline with limitless potential and a unique history that incorporates sculpture, architecture, design, craft and decorative art.
The department is a specific Tiffany Style stained glass, mosaic and fusion program that combines this rich and diverse heritage with an unending material and process investigation of glass, and a corresponding commitment to conceptual development and artistic criticality.
