Marco Varisco is heir to a glorious family tradition. He has kept this tradition, of his grandfather Marco and his father Italo, alive. Although young, Marco ensures the continuity of his family of glassmakers by combining old formulae with new creativity and enthusiasm. Marco Varisco is passionate about his work, which he started at the age of 13 (he crafted the gifts for his Confirmation). After the eighth grade, he attended evening classes of design. Luckily enough he was able to work both with his grandfather and his father, so that he learnt two different craft techniques. Growing up, Mark has become an increasingly irreplaceable assistant to his father, in terms of creativity, as well as realisation. In fact, the customer’s precise request needs to be reworked by the artist, who interprets the requested features according to his own sensitivity. The three generations are present at the Museum of the Vatican: his grandfather Marco produced the Pope’s votive lamp that can be found in the Sistine Chapel, Italo crafted the dish with the Tree of Life, and Mark engraved the Sottoportico Buranelli (one of Treviso’s most beautiful corners) on a plate. Marco now works with his father full-time. Together, they have produced works for the Mayor of New York, the king and queen of Spain, and Bill Clinton.
