Overview

The Glass Art Department at Accademia Riaci in Florence, Italy considers glass to be an artist's material having remarkable and complex expressive range, as well as a studio discipline with limitless potential and unique history that incorporates sculpture, architecture, design, craft, and decorative art. Tiffany Style stained glass, mosaic and fusion program combine this rich and diverse heritage with an unending material and process investigation of glass, and a corresponding commitment to conceptual development and artistic criticality. Glass majors are asked to value and nurture their native curiosity as the basis for a personal aesthetic that engages a wide world through continual experimentation and artistic striving. The glass department provides its students with a thorough technical foundation and broad resources for specialized material exploration. An extensive curriculum offers a full range of glass working processes.
