Giberto Arrivabene on Artemest – VIDEO

Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga was raised by strong female figures in Palazzo Papadopoli, Venice, surrounded by Tiepolo frescoes. The context in which he grew up had a great impact on his unique sense of aesthetics. A love of glass and craftsmanship are at the heart of his work. He creates each piece starting first with a watercolor sketch and then handing it to expert glass Masters from Murano entrusted to hand-blow the glass and engrave designs such as the coat of arms on the Goto glass.
