Lino Tagliapietra’s “Angel Tear” series is one of his tallest, along with the “Dinosaur” series. In contrast to the “Dinosaurs,” however,” the necks of these rather tall glass sculptures are straight rather than curved and the bases are usually larger and wider. All of Lino’s well-know techniques such as surface cutting, cane work and the use of “murini,” can be seen in this beautiful series. All of the Lino glass for sale seen on these pages are available through Holsten Galleries. “Angel Tear” pieces by Lino Tagliapietra are often nulti-colored and quite painterly. The can be found in many private and public collections throughout the world and are considered to be Iconic, in the sense that the form is immediately recognizable as Tagliapietra’s original work.
