Marcantonio Brandolini d'Adda
Marcantonio Brandolini d’Adda (b. 1991) lives and works in Venice. He is the founder of AUTONOMA, an educational factory in Murano, created together with the Pilchuck School of Glass (Seattle), and brings together the skills of the island and the creativity of outsiders. Marcantonio Brandolini d’Adda was also previously an artist-in-residence at Pilchuck School of Glass and has spent much of his life in Murano’s furnaces. Due to the radical techniques that he has invented, which has never before been seen or attempted in Murano, he has revolutionized the way that glass can be understood and used as a material in contemporary sculptural practice. Marcantonio Brandolini d’Adda has exhibited his work at the Museo del Vetro (Glass Museum) in Murano, as well as at the galleries ALMA ZEVI (Venice), and David Gill (London).
