Luca Vidal

Luca Vidal was born in Venice on July 1, 1976. At the young age of 14 he started to work with glass studying under the Glass Maestro Imperio Rossi in Murano before becoming the youngest glass worker under the tutelage of the masters at Effetre Studio. Vidal has worked over the years with many of the most important Glass Maestros on Murano; men like Afro Celotto, Silvano Molin, Luciano Pavanello, Giancarlo Tagliapietra and Dino Vio. Luca Vidal now expresses his own ideas and techniques in the one-of-a-kind sculptures he creates. It is in this period that his colleagues give him the nickname “Crema”, due to his natural ability to gracefully shape glass as a “cream”.

In 2000, while working at the Artistic Glass Factory Schiavon, Luca Vidal again had the opportunity to work with the great Maestro Afro Celotto, with whom he had also known at Effetre. One year later, after learning the techniques of filigrana, mosaics and tessere murrines, he decided to open a new studio with Afro Celotto and Carlo Tagliapietra. In 2009, when Afro Celotto left the studio, it gave Vidal the chance to express his own talents and energy.
