Founded in 1996, Vetri showcases the work of extraordinary artists and designers. With roots in the studio glass movement, we focus on the innovative work being made by contemporary artists in glass. In addition to glass, we are proud to show the work of ceramic artists, independent jewelry designers, and artists who work with wood, plaster and metal, creating a forum for artists whose work is informed by materiality.
