Davide Salvadore Glassblowing
Davide Salvadore was born into a family of glassworkers in Murano, Italy. At a very early age he began following his grandfather into Murano's furnaces, learning how to build kilns and work glass.
In 1987 he founded his own studio, where he operates kilns he built himself, mixing lamp-work and furnace techniques in new ways.
As a result of his ingenuity and the inventiveness of his creations, Salvadore's glass design became instantly noteworthy, and he has since worked at prestigious glasshouses and collaborated with designers and artists across the globe.
