Massimo Micheluzzi Murano (b.1957) is known for his use of traditional Venetian techniques, typically murrines and battuto carving, which are executed in a highly modern and contemporary manner. Born and educated in Venice, he was introduced to glass by Laura de Santillana, granddaughter of Paolo Venini. His work can be found in museums and public collections internationally, including the Corning Museum of Glass, and The Museum of Art & Design in New York and he is represented by top galleries including Barry Friedman in New York.
