Designer name: Diaz de Santillana, Laura
  1955 -
Murano glass is Laura de Santillana's heritage. Her grandfather, Paolo Venini, founded the famed Venini glassworks in the 1920s and her father, Ludovico Diaz de Santillana, an architect, directed the firm from 1959 to 1986. But she has also studied in the United States and, since making her glass debut in the mid-70s, has been part of the international studio glass movement. Her recent sculpture, the subject of this book, are stele-like objects—blown vessels that have been compressed until the two walls of glass meet. The works are presented dramatically, one to a page or spread, with captions relegated to the back of the book. The book accompanied solo exhibitions of the artist's work this past spring at the Museo Correr in Venice and the Barry Friedman gallery in New York City.
