Biemmeci was founded in the early 1980s, when the master glassmaker Alberto Mattiello, known as Geremia, decided to set up on his own. Working the glass entirely by hand, without any resort to moulds, he produced objects of extraordinary elegance and lightness. Stefano Mattiello would follow in his father’s footsteps, setting up Nuova Biemmeci in 1997. This small company created a niche market for itself with its fine-quality work of very special character. Each piece is a one-off, made using traditional instruments and techniques – and thus preserving the on-going traditions of the master glassmakers of Murano.
