Reserved forms and color palates, mostly mono or dichromatic, backdrop the fluid movement of his surface carving. Indelibly intertwined with life on these watery islands, Micheluzzi's battuto patterns recall the gently curving canals and waterways of Venice, skillfully imparting softness to an otherwise rigid medium. While many Italian glass designers are traditionally beholden to the skills of the master glassblower, Micheluzzi maintains an unusual amount of control over the making processes of his works.

Born in Venice in 1957, Massimo Micheluzzi was introduced to the world of glass in the late 70s as a young photographer for the renowned Venini glass factory, an extraordinary experience that over time will prove to be decisive.
Following a long and fruitful apprenticeship in the furnace, Micheluzzi started his personal journey in the late 90s. His work has constantly evolved since then as he continues to explore new ways of mastering the material, whilst always remaining ‘true’ to the nature of glass.
Working alongside his master glassblower, Massimo Micheluzzi uses the techniques that have defined the Murano tradition intervening directly on each phase of the creative process. Striving to balance tradition and innovation, he applies these ancient crafts to achieve a uniquely modern aesthetic.
Micheluzzi’s work is deeply embedded in the life and history of the city of Venice and constantly inspired by its watery surroundings and architecture. His eclectic body of work shifts between fluid and organic shapes, iridescent transparencies and opaque carved surfaces as well as elaborate colour combinations, mosaic patterns and sculptural forms.
