Dino Rosin was born in Venice, Italy on May 30, 1948.
At the age of twelve, he left school and began work as an apprentice at the Barovier and Toso glassworks where he remained until he joined his brothers, Loredano and Mirko, at their factory, Artvet, in 1963.
Rosin continued at Artvet until 1975 when he moved to Loredano’s newly established studio as his assistant. There he collaborated with his brother for almost 20 years.
In 1988, Dino Rosin was invited to Pilchuck Glass School in the state of Washington to teach solid freehand glass sculpture with Loredano and the American glass artist, William Morris.
In 1992,. Dino assumed the role of “maestro” and began single-handedly to produce his brother’s old designs and ultimately his own.,
His skillful use of Calcedonia glass (glass made with silver and other elements developed in Murano during the mid fifteenth century) is unique and makes his pieces recognizable and highly collectible.
Dino rediscovered the formula for this unique, striated glass and has continued to improve the coloration.
Each piece is different; the exact flow of lines and color of calcedonia cannot be duplicated.
