Scarpa’s Glass

Tomba_Brion_039-710

An exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (which opened yesterday) focuses on the glassworks of Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, who simultaneously explored the worlds of architecture and expert glassmaking. Scarpa served as an artistic consultant to famed Murano glass studio Venini, helping to push the form and develop new, pioneering techniques. He used his knowledge in incredible ways with his architecture (as in Brion Cemetary, shown), and several of his radical glassworks designs are on view in the show through March 2.
