Before studying glassblowing at The Glass Eye, Washington, where he met Benjamin Moore, who confirmed his passion and commitment to pursue glassblowing. Over the years, Dante has taught extensively in many countries with influences from Lino Taglipietra and Richard Marquis.

His execution to combine American and Venetian techniques is world-renowned. ‘I have never really been in love with all the obvious qualities of glass. I am more in love with the process and the traditions, age-old and of the contemporary studio variety. Form is always my primary concern; light manipulation and colour are almost an afterthought’.

Dante Marioni is considered a master of glassblowing and his work is help in numerous private and public collections worldwide.
