“If I arrived here -in Murano- it is because I made an exchange with a master glassmaker. He wished to master oil painting and, based on what I knew, I offered to teach him. In exchange for the painting lessons I gave, the master glassmaker gave me all the recipes for glass composition.”

Meet Aristide Najean


Glass artist and painter

For Aristide Najean, the elusive Murano glass was a possibility for him to extend the scope of his work. Originally a painter, Aristide came to Murano with the sole objective of mastering the intricate craft of glassmaking, and after decades of hard work, he is now recognized -even among his Italian colleagues- as being one of the best master glassmakers alive today. Blending his knowledge of colors and composition with the unique medium that is the Murano glass, Aristide has established himself as an artist of both skills and vision.
