Matteo Seguso

Glass engraver

Matteo Seguso is a Venetian glass engraver living and work in Murano, the island of glass. Always in search of new stimuli and challenges, Matteo is one of the youngest performers of the traditional handmade glass engraving technique and cold working. His engraved pieces sit in many private collections around the world. In his workshop, inherited from his father Bruno and the partner Paolo, Matteo creates artistic engravings on vases, glasses, mirrors or any glass object, giving rise to a wide range of drawings, sketches and embroidery. Matteo collaborates with several furnaces in Murano, as well as with internationally renowned designers and artists. But his spirit remains tied to Venice and Murano where, one day, maybe his children might follow in their father’s footsteps. "They play with the wheel, like I did as a child in the workshop".
