The Golden Age of Venetian Glass
Jane Gardiner, who trained at the V&A and for 17 years was a senior lecturer at Sotheby’s, considers the early history of glass making in Venice, the material itself and the techniques involved in forming and decorating the pieces as well as the early fashion for richly coloured and enamelled glass, the sources of inspiration behind the forms and decoration, who would have owned the pieces and how they would have been used or displayed.
