Boston native Nancy Callan began her career as assistant to Lino Tagliapietra, and today remains a key member of the maestro’s glassblowing team and travels internationally as his assistant. Her own work combines the skill and finesse of the Venetian tradition with the wit and aesthetic sensibility of a contemporary artist. Although her artwork features highly refined forms and complex patterns, a sense of play and fun is equally prominent. Callan’s artwork has garnered numerous awards, and it can be found in permanent collections of museums and art collectors around the world. She collaborated and developed new ideas in the world-class TMA Glass Studio.
