Mallett is delighted to announce Glass Ambition, the first UK exhibition of world-renowned Lino Tagliapietra, the 80-year-old Venetian master glass blower. 

The exhibition will feature new works by the artist, showcased at Ely House, 37 Dover Street, London W1S 4NJ, between 26 May and 4 July 2015.

Tagliapietra is the most ambitious and influential glassmaker of his generation. He is now the beloved patriarch of all glass artists, with the popular Dale Chihuly crowning him “the greatest glassblower there ever was”.

He is the only foreign living artist to have had a solo exhibition at the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery in Washington DC (2009).
