Choosing the subjects

We thought it would be significant to produce a series of glass works with subjects taken from incisions, paintings, and miniatures by Italian and European artists who worked in the centuries from the 15th through the 19th . It has always been the way of the Italian glass masters to start with a drawing by a professional artist and to arrive at the so called cartoon , for the stained glass panel plan, done by the glass artist.

We have chosen in first place Albrecht Durer, who has always been loved by glass artists, and Carlo Crivelli . Then we have chosen artists who are not well known , such as miniature artist Giovanna Garzoni , and artists who are well known, such as Mantegna, Solario and il Sassoferrato, and we have gone freely until Edward Burne-Jones.

With the production of these glass works, we want to show the quality and the possibilities of the painting and firing technique.
