Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Alfredo Barbini began learning the art of glass making in 1912, aged ten, at Abate Zanetti, the design school attached to the Murano Glass museum.

He then went on to work for Ferro Toso, Cristalleria Murano, Zecchin-Martinuzzi, Seguso Vetri'dArte and Vetri Artistici Muranesi Societa Anonima.

In 1946 Barbini became partner at Cenedese, and then began Barbini Glassworks in 1950. Some financial assistance for setting up the factory was provided by Salviati and in exchange, Barbini supplied the company with some of the glassware they produced. 

Barbini has become renowned for his heavy, thick sculptural forms which have won him many awards.
