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.
