“You have one business on earth, to save souls.” This quotation by John Wesley has always been in the back of LagunaB mind. “ Our business”is to communicate and work with Murano and Venice on projects that keep alive it’s great glass industry, unrivaled for centuries. We want to make Murano and Venice an international meeting point and a creative factory for artists and people worldwide.
MURANO ANNO I
LAGUNA B PILCHUCK MURANO Residency:
One of our main ambitions for the future is Education, (the key word for “saving souls”) that is why we started this 360°collaboration with Pilchuck school of Glass. We want to give the students involved in the project the opportunity of discovering what Murano is still capable to offer and imagining new links between Murano and the rest of the world.This project was supported by LagunaB and a group of factories who strongly believe that in way to be competitive is necessary to open the doors to the outside world and share their techniques in way to not loose them. We planed a 360° experience with the ambition of giving a wide view on the many techniques used in Murano, in order to do that the student have been working three mornings, with the maestros, in each of the five factories involved. They also have two afternoons a week to experiment what they learn or make their inspired pieces. We also put together extra activities linked with Glass and Venice. Hoping that one day maybe they will move to Venice
