Who we are
The brand Cortestudioglass combines tradition ( the ancient glass working technique called “lampworking” learnt in Murano island) with contemporaneity that is reflected by pure and essential lines.
Bright colors and shapes intentionally irregulars are the main characteristics of our creations.
In CSG you will discover a continuous process of production because the object is thought and created by only one mind. What does it mean? It means that we design and realizes each glass piece starting by a simple sketch on paper and then figuring out how to achieve a good result out of glass.
We believe in fact that only the artisan who has a solid humanistic background and never stops improving his own skills is able to submerge himself symbiotically in the matter and push it beyond its extreme chromatic and formal boundaries.
Alberto Corte attended humanities secondary school but has always been attracted by Arts, particularly by painting.
He was introduced to glass by his wife Paola. He got immediately fascinated by this fluid magic material and started his lampworking carrier in 2008 in Venice, Italy.
He took a week course with glass master Paolo Cenedese at the Abate Zanetti School in Murano to learn glass blowing hollow beads. Then he improved his skills and self taught other techniques as glass sculpturing. He works every day to satisfy his customers requirements, collaborates with designers and designs his own collections.
He likes experimenting with glass to find new ways of expression and color shades for his creations.
Paola Scapin attended humanities secondary school and graduated in languages at Ca’Foscari University, but she was always fond of arts and handcraft.
In 2006 attended a 2 months european social fund course at Abate Zanetti school in Murano to learn lampworking beads in the traditional way ( using a air/metane torch) and modern way ( using a oxygen/propane torch) .Then in 2007 she took a week course with the glass master Igor Balbi to learn the basics of pipe blown goblets and off mandrel techniques. She learned glass fusion technique too to explore other ways for working glass. Now she works with Alberto in their laboratory in Asolo. She thinks that having the possibility to create something with her own hands is a privilege and .she’s very lucky because she can also designs her works that other people could wear.
