Maestro Lino Tagliapietra is coming to Istanbul in April in honor of the Glass Furnace's 10th anniversary. Tagliapietra will host 12 glass-blowing demonstrations for Glass Furnace guests on April 21-27. Glass makers, aspiring artists and people who love the art from all corners of the globe will be joined at the Glass Furnace by world famous glass artist Dante Marioni and Seattle glass artist Janusz Pozniak, who will assist Tagliapietra in his demonstrations. The maestro will stage a new feat at the Glass Furnace during his April 21-27 appearance.
