Support the Foundation!

 Lino Tagliapietra has been very supportive of the work of the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation ever since he first came to Kentucky for the Millennium Glass exhibition in 2000. To show his ongoing support, he has created this stunning vessel which is to be raffled to support our educational activities. 

The drawing will be held during our International Glass Vessels exhibition on Friday, June 27, 2003.

Tickets are a $30 tax-deductible donation.

Call (502) 589-0102 to purchase tickets.

You need not be present to win!

Lino Tagliapietra was born on the island of Murano (Italy) in 1934, and began his career alongside Archimede Seguso as an apprentice.

  That was when he was 11, and by age 21 he was a maestro. Today he is considered among the finest glass blowers in the world.
