Dino Rosin - Italy
Art Brokerage: Dino Rosin Italian Artist: b. 1948. Dino Rosin was born in Venice, Italy on May 30, 1948. His family moved to the glassmaking island of Murano when he was two months old. At the age of twelve, he left school and began work as an apprentice at the Barovier and Toso glassworks where he remained until he joined his brothers, Loredano and Mirko, at their factory, Artvet, in 1963. Dino continued at Artvet until 1975 when he moved to Loredano's newly established studio as his assistant. There Dino collaborated with his brother for almost 20 years. He was Loredano's right hand in the "piazza" and a master in his own right in cold work. In 1988, Dino Rosin was invited to Pilchuck Glass School in the state of Washington to teach solid freehand glass sculpture with Loredano and the American glass artist, William Morris. Then in 1992, Loredano met an untimely death in a boating accident. Dino assumed the role of "maestro" and began single-handedly to produce his brother's old designs and ultimately his own. His skillful use of "calcedonia" glass is unique and makes his pieces recognizable and highly collectible.
