Bruno Romanelli

Bruno Romanelli Biography

Bruno Romanelli is a London based artist specialising in the technique of lost-wax glass casting. Bruno made his name creating unique figurative sculptures, but more recently has gone on to produce stunning abstract forms that combine themes of geometry, nature, light, symmetry and colour into elegant sculptural forms. Each piece can take from four weeks to four months to create, undergoing many processes along the way, truly fitting the description ‘labour of love’.

With a well appointed foundry in South London, Bruno Romanelli also takes on commissioned work, most notably producing the ‘Rising Star’ glass trophy for BAFTA’s televised award ceremony each year for the past decade. Bruno also works closely with Wrightson & Platt, producing their glassware since 1999, as well as collaborating with them and Peter Layton on unique projects.
