Victor Trabucco

Victor Trabucco began working with glass in 1974 after seeing a flameworker make a sculpture. He knew this was what he wanted to do for his life’s work. Trabucco says that, “Glass is the ultimate challenge; it has properties of no other material and offers the artist possibilities that are inspiring for the creative process.
