BIOGRAPHY

My artistic career begins in 1988 with the opening of my own workshop after years of apprenticeship in glass furnaces.

The need of challenging the technical limits of glass has generated a rich and intense collaboration with many established artists and designers.

This experience has also affected my own knowledge of glass blowing and has given me the chance of showing the results of my research in solo and group shows.

These activities have been accompanied in the past few years by the decision of sharing my own experience through workshops and by teaching at art schools.

COMPANY

The company was created in 1996 as a place where a group of collaborators could gather technical capacities, artistic vocation, passion and fantasy.

The place is an ex dairy: an industrial archeology restored with very few structural interventions in order to respect its original spirit. Here we have based our professional experiences and here we work everyday on continuous improvement which translates into the evolution of our creations. All collaborators participate to an ongoing internal training.

The attention and the respect for professionality is constant throughout all the productive cycle of our activity, from the origin and the quality of the raw material to the minimum impact of production and waste on the environment.

Massimo Lunardon creations are exclusively produced within our Laboratorio in San Giorgio di Perlena, Italy.

COLLABORATIONS

The studio right from the beginning has been a meeting point for artists and unfolding talents: architects, artists, designers and students have found in the workshop a place open to experimental processes and collaborations. I have been given the precious opportunity to share my experience with:
