Dino Rosin: Fine Art Sculptor in Glass
By Debbie Tarsitano
Debbie Tarsitano traces the life and times of Dino Rosin, fine art sculptor in glass. Dino and older brother Loredano experimented with “Calcedonia,” one of the most unusual types of early glass in Murano written about as long ago as the mid-15th century. The lost formula for Calcedonia reappeared during the 19th century, and then was lost again until through trials and experiments, the Rosin brothers rediscovered it in modern times. Their introduction of eerie striations and unusual colors of Calcedonia into their sculptures enhanced the work and gave it a mysterious energy that is difficult to describe because each batch of Calcedonia is unique.
