Bubacco, born on Murano in 1957, began playing with glass as a boy, making small animals, beads, and the usual lampworker’s tablet. Lucio Bubacco’s works combine the anatomic perfection of Greek sculpture with the Byzantine gothic architecture of his native Venice. He is known for his unique human and fantasy figures, which are entirely hand-formed and incorporated in blown vases or in casting. At fifteen he received his artisan’s license and began marketing flameworked Venetian memorabilia. His technical experience and knowledge of glass color compatibility allow him to create unique works.
