Death of Pino Signoretto, Murano glass master
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:12:00 AM »
I was saddened to read of the very recent demise (within the last couple of days) of Murano glass master Pino Signoretto.  Born in 1944, Pino became a glass master in 1960 at the age of 16. He has earned a reputation as one of the top glassmakers in the world.

There are a few more details on his Facebook page here and you can watch the master at work here:
