Silvano Signoretto

of work may be found in museums and importend galleries.
In the specific case of Signoretto we are in front of one of the greatest exponent of the “mano volante” , (literally “flying hand”), technique; from a mass of incandescent magma he “sculpts” with glass makers tools his figures, with no possibility of mistake.

Silvano Signoretto has worked and still works with many exponents of
contemporary art from all over the world such as; Ernest Fuschs, Steve Tobin, Ginny Ruffner, Peter Shire, Fulvio Bianconi, Scarpa, James Coignard, Ernest Bilgreen, Berit Johansson and dozens of others.

Silvano Signoretto is, in actual fact, a sculptor of glass above all else, an artist who manipulates glass paste with rare strength and skill.

figures of horses, birds, human beings and heads seem to have vital forces that are seeking to escape from the glass masses in which they are imprisoned.

Signoretto, who trained at the school of an unforgotten master, the Great Barbini, is now a Master himself. He attempts everything in glass because, he says, “A master must be capable of making anything”. His production is variegated and even unusual sometimes as he lets his mind drift into his dream and those dreams become the Art which is shared and admired with the world.
