Davide Salvadore

David Salvadore is Muranese maestro descended from generations of glassworkers. He has collaborated with venerated glass houses such as Venini, Barovier & Toso, Nason & Moretti, and La Murrina. Salvadore creates passionately expressive one-of-a-kind sculptures that push the boundaries of centuries-old traditions. He combines traditional Italian techniques and elements in innovative ways in his work, which reflects diverse influences such as African tribal imagery, Muranese roads, and the smokestacks of glasshouses.

“I encourage my audience to have a real encounter with each piece. I want them to touch it, to caress it, and to understand the shapes and movements. Simply, I want the enthusiast to experience what I feel for my art, which is passion and love.”

Davide Salvadore is represented by Sandra Ainsley Gallery, located in Toronto, the leading contemporary glass art gallery in Canada.
