Table or floor lamp most likely designed and made by Lino Tagliapietra, who is a master in this technique. Mouth blown Murano glass; none of them are exactly the same.

Lino Tagliapietra was born August 10, 1934 in Murano, Italy and has also worked extensively in the United States. As a teacher and mentor, he has played a key role in the international exchange of glass blowing processes and techniques between the principal American centers and his native Murano, but his influence is  apparent in the whole world.

Lino Tagliapietra:
“I don’t invent anything new; I personalize something … and that makes it something that nobody has done before.”
