Dante Marioni: Blown Glass
Dante Marioni was exposed to the art of glass blowing by the age of 15 when he moved with his family to Seattle. The son of pioneering studio glass artist Paul Marioni, Dante Marioni grew up with a family of artists that includes two well-known uncles, painter Joseph Marioni and conceptual artist Tom Marioni. Dante received intensive early training at Pilchuck School in Stanwood, Washington, working overtime to practice glassblowing.
By the late-1980s, Marioni was exhibiting in major galleries and museums such as the Bellevue Art Museum, Washington, and the American Craft Museum, New York. In 1995, he was invited to the Clinton White House as part of an exhibition, and his work graced the cover of the accompanying publication, The White House Collection of American Crafts.
His works are part of major collections and museums worldwide, including the Corning Museum of Glass; the Chrysler Museum; the New Zealand National Museum of Art; the Smithsonian Institution; Racine Art Museum; and the Yokohama Museum of Art.
