Collection exhibition of works of the artists who display their unique expressions while incorporating the technique of Venetian glass including newly added works to the collection by Lino Tagliapietra.

Glass artists who use the traditional technique of Venetian glass form their works by utilizing the soft movement of molten glass while sometimes rendering delicate patterns and decorations through the sophisticated blowing technique. The attitude of pursuing their own expressions as they learn a vast amount of knowledge and history of Venetian glass can be seen among artists, firstly Tagliapietra who refined his skills in Murano, the home of Venetian glass, and Dale Chihuly, Fujita Kyohei, Ohira Yoichi who made their works together with Venetian glassmakers, as well as Dante Marioni, Nick Mount, Konishi Ushio, Enami Fujiko, and Yasuda Taizo.
