In the evening on Thursday, March 9th, artist Dante Marioni will be speaking at the Craft in America Center and giving an up close and personal look at his recent work in the artist's first visit to Los Angeles since 1996. The son of pioneering studio glass artist Paul Marioni, Dante studied at Pilchuck Glass School with the guidance of master artists Lino Tagliapietra and Benjamin Moore.
