One of the world's most eminent living glass artists, Lino Tagliapietra was born in1934 on the island of the centuries-old center for Venetian glassmaking, Murano. At the age of eleven, he was apprenticed to the glass studio of the internationally known Muranese master, Archimede Seguso, and achieved the rank of maestro by age twenty-one. He later worked as master glassblower and designer at other glass studios, including Galliano Ferro, Venini, La Murrina, and Effetre International.

For the past three decades, Tagliapietra has generously shared his unsurpassed experience, understanding, and knowledge of traditional Venetian glassblowing techniques with glass artists and audiences around the world.  He has been largely responsible for a new renaissance in glassblowing that has swept through the world of studio glassmaking.  It is not exaggerating to say that he has affected the course of glass history by helping to raise the international standards of glass craftsmanship.
