Massimo Micheluzzi

Massimo Micheluzzi was born in Venice, Italy, in 1957. Outside the hours he worked in the family-owned glass and antiques business he studied art history at the Ca’ Foscari university.
Initially his interest in contemporary glass art was aroused through the friendship with the Venini-de Santillana family when he was in his twenties. In 1990 he entered into cooperation with Laura de Santillana. While he helped her produce her work he acquired a wealth of experience in the art of glass making. A short while later, aided by Archimede Seguso, he began to focus on making works of his own.

The multi-facetted work of Massimo Micheluzzi evinces the beauty of his native Venice to no small degree. His legendary murrina vessels evoke the reflections on the waters of the city with its manifold textures, the grey of a cloudy day or the silver lustre of the lagoons. “I wanted to convey a sense of motion by means of a static material, like a Canaletto painting”, Micheluzzi explains. Today, he is one of the few glass artists on Murano who still has mastery of the elaborate murrina technique. Equally unique are his battuto glasses recalling beaten silver.
Micheluzzi’s works are part of numerous prominent collections.
