Archimede Seguso (1909-1999)
Master glassmaker of the firm "Seguso Vetri d'Arte" in 1933 to 1945, it was in 1946 that he founded his own glassworks, of which he is in charge of the artistic direction. In the 1950s, he renovates the old technique of filigree, which he applies to pieces with asymmetrical shapes. He participated in numerous exhibitions, notably at the Venice Biennale in 1952. Gino Seguso inherited from his father, who died in 1999, one of the most prestigious glassworks in Venice.
