Davide Salvadore


Davide Salvadore was born in Murano in 1953. Descending from a family of glassworkers, he has always lived and worked on the Venetian island. At very early ages, he began following his grandfather Antonio into the furnaces of Murano. From him he learned how to build the kilns, and soon after began to work glass in the furnace of Alfredo Barbini. A short time later he joined the team of glassmaster Loredano Rosin, where he stayed for 4 years.

Subsequently, he alternated collaborations in the Venini and Barovier & Toso (750 year old glass company) glasshouses with work in small craft studios on the island. In 1978 he began producing lamp-worked beads in his mother Anna Mantoan's jewelry studios. This led to a series of collaborations with fashion and design houses such as Roberta di Camerino, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Swatch.

In 1987 he his current studio which he manages today with 2 other partners. Within the studio Davide works as a glassmaster - at the kilns he built himself - mixing lamp-work and furnace techniques in new ways. The result were instantly noteworthy, and over time Davide began working for prestigious glasshouses on Murano- Nason & Moretti, Vincenzo Nason, La Murrina as well as for the Istituto d'Arte di Venezia, and collaborating with designers and artists such as andrea Anastasio, Giorgio Vigna, Florys Meydam, Frank Borst, Massimo Nordio.

Davide Salvadore is also a founding member of "Centro Studio Vetro" in Murano, a non-profit Cultural Association founded in 1997 to cultivate and promote - in Italy and abroad - the culture and art of glass. His work is collected internationally and in many public and private permanent collections. His eye for design and his mastery of sophisticated Italian techniques make his work truly one-of-a-kind.
