Dino Rosin was born in Venice on May 30, 1948. His family moved to the glassmaking island of Murano when he was two months old. 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.
Dino continued at Artvet until 1975 when he moved to Loredano's newly established studio as his assistant. There Dino collaborated with his brother for almost 20 years. He was Loredano's right hand in the "Piazza" and a master in his own right in cold work.
In 1988, Dino was invited to Pilchuck Glass School in Washington to teach solid freehand glass sculpture with Loredano and the American glass artist William Morris. Then in 1992 Loredano met an untimely death in a boating accident. 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 is unique and makes his pieces recognizable and highly collectible.
Dino Rosin's work is shown at many galleries throughout the United States. His first personal appearance tour in America was in 1993. He has since made repeated visits to the States. In the summer of 1998, Dino taught at Pilchuck. The following summer, he taught at the Corning Museum School. His work continues to be admired and collected, coveted for its scale and its ever-changing calcedonia color palette.
Dino Rosin’s glass works is represented in a select few prestigious galleries through the United States and Europe. Art Leaders Gallery exclusively represents the work in the State of Michigan.
