Mattia and Marco Salvadore began working alongside their father,
Davide Salvadore. Both brothers
inherited their father’s passion for the material, and began to work with him
full time after attending college.
In 2003, Mattia assisted Pino Signoretto, Franco Toffolo, and
Dante Marioni at the international glass workshop organized by Centro Studio
Vetro. To develop his skills outside his
father’s studio, Mattia also studied with a variety of Muranese masters.
Marco was a presenter at the 2009 Glass Art Society, along with
his father and brother, and has travelled around the
world to teach glass working techniques.
The Salvadore brothers’ works are captivating: the two artists
concentrate on a few forms, simple, graceful elliptical shapes with layered
colours and textures, all very labour and technique intensive. Their signature
is the use of swathes of colour encased in transparent or opaque glass with
large custom made murrine applied on the surface.
