Paola Petrobelli

Paola Petrobelli was born in Padova, and trained as a molecular biologist. She moved to London in 1991, left her high level medical research to become a glass designer in 1999.

 

Collaborating with different Murano glass makers since her beginnings, Petrobelli works in simple, rigorous and sensuous shapes which she combines with her sophisticated use of colours. She rejects the purely decorative glasswork in favour of functional objects such as floor or table lamps, suspensions, tableware and vessels.

 

Petrobelli has worked on commissions for prestigious domestic projects in the United Kingdom and Italy, often connected to major players of the contemporary art world.
