Gerardo Cardinale / Glass

Gerardo Cardinale, born in Italy and living in The Netherlands, earned his mastership as a glassblower after many years of hard work. Not without recognition, as he was honored as Europe's best glassblower in 1995 - a title the artist still carries with great pride.

Glasswork is all about speed and timing - two qualities Gerardo clearly posesses while he swiftly and skillfully moves the pieces to bring them into the desired shape.
