Past Projects

Lucio is recognized as one of the most accomplished and versatile lampworkers of our time. His talent as a sculptor finds expression in the nude; his finesse as a glass craftsman demonstrates consummate skill. For the onlooker, Lucio is a magician as he shapes a perfect sculptural form from a blob of molten glass with ease and artistry.

Lucio is a miniaturist whose sculptural projects are a canvas with a big idea patiently developed in an additive process. A master on the torch, he fashions and imbues each detail with expression and a view to the overall scheme.

This section provides an overview of Lucio’s recently completed larger projects and installations.
