A Venetian, art glass sculpture of a nude female torso in clear and chalcedony glass on stand. The Dino Rosin studio is known for their revival of the use of chalcedony glass which makes each piece unique. The complicated chalcedony glass technique originated in Murano in the 15th century. Dino began his art glass apprenticeship in Murano at the age of 12 at Barovier and Toso where he worked until he joined his brothers company Artvet in 1963. In 1975 he moved to his brother Loredano's new studio where he remained for the next 20 years. After his brother's death, Dino took over the company. His glass sculptures are unique for their use of the material chalcedony which makes each piece unique. Rosin's sculptures have been exhibited across the United States including a one-man show at the Corning Museum.
