Who is Wave Murano Glass

Wave Murano Glass, on the island of Murano, the birthplace of millenary art of blown glass, is a glass blowing factory run composed by a small group of glass-blowers and glass experts led by the glass master and production manager Roberto Beltrami.

Description

We will meet Roberto Beltrami of Wave Murano Glass. Roberto does not have family ties in the Murano tradition, but he managed to
acquire the skills of the great masters in a short period of time. Like all Murano glass blowers, he has a great deal of respect for tradition and he is not a rebel, but he decided to bring his concept of the craftsman from the mainland. Wave Murano Glass respects practices which have been established over centuries, but adding an extra tool to this tradition: youth’s enthusiasm to try out new paths. Roberto loves keeping his hands busy, but he knows he is a child of the digital age. With this awareness, he has introduced new processes to an art that has been virtually changeless for centuries. He knows that the value of young people is having an open mind and a fresh point of view. Armed with this belief, Roberto has quickly become a good glass blower, as well as a point of reference within the Murano glassmaking tradition.
