Lino Tagliapietra 

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 centres and his native Murano, but his influence is  apparent in the whole world. Lino is master in this striped technique. Tagliapietra made many items for the Effetre company, in all probability also this pendant lamp.

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

Effetre International

The Effetre company’s name is the abbreviated form of fratelli tre or three brothers. The company originates from the 19th century Moretti factory.
