Event description

Description

Experience the most recent hand blown glass art of Afro Celotto at Murano Midwest Gallery and Gardens. Celotto is a master among masters in the world of Murano glass. All glass art for sale as well as viewing.

Afro's art glass sculpture is simply effortless. His flair for color is like no other glass artist. The mastery of traditional Venetian forms and techniques melds with a whimsical spirit that is striking.

Fans of Lino Tagliapietra may know Afro was Lino's right hand when Lino still worked in Murano and replaced him at Effetre International when Lino moved to the US to work with Chihuly. Chihuly is on record as saying that Lino is the best glass blower in the world today. And Afro would be the first to tell you that he is a better artist than Lino!

Viewings after the exhibition opening are by appointment. Please be sure to register so that we know to expect you.
