1948 年出生於義大利的威尼斯,12 歲即展開學習玻璃雕塑藝術生涯,追隨藝術水晶大師巴羅維爾‧托索(Barovier e Toso)學習創作技巧;1963 年投入其兄長勞瑞丹諾(Loredano Rosin)工作室,共同從事創作近二十年;1988 年他應邀至西雅圖著名的玻璃藝術學校 Pilchuck 教授實心藝術雕塑水晶,在此結識美國知名藝術家威廉‧莫里斯(William Morris),並互相切磋;1991 年其兄長因船難身故,他秉持著堅定的意念,繼續發揚光大其兄之技藝並自創其新風格,正式躍昇大師級玻璃藝術雕塑家,成為羅辛家族混彩水晶(Calcedonia)製作的接班人。

 

所謂的「混彩水晶」(Calcedonia)是指一種具有多彩線條的水晶玻璃,其紋路、色澤近乎神奇的變化,主要來自於水晶玻璃成分的硝酸銀與多種礦物質結合後所產生的化學變化,這也是近五百年來,為何「混彩水晶」深受世人著迷成為世界各知名博物館廣為典藏的原因所在。然而它還有一段如傳奇般的故事,混彩水晶的神祕處方曾在十五世紀時失傳了近五百年之久,一直到 1977 年羅辛家族再度研發製造出神奇的混彩水晶。

 

迪諾的創作主題十分豐富,不論是自然生活中的寫照或是對於宇宙生命的冥想,經由他的巧手幻化為栩栩如生、令人感動的作品。迪諾的「混彩水晶」雕塑更是義大利,甚至在世界上、獨一無二的創作技術,特點是玻璃與色澤之間的絕妙變化,可以使色彩呈現出更豐富多樣貌,如鈷藍色、玫瑰色調和紅葡萄酒色之韻味,以及難得一見的優雅的流動線條和造形;因此,迪諾的每件作品均有其獨特性,也因此提升了水晶藝術品的收藏價值。迪諾的作品廣受世界各地收藏家的喜好,亦收藏於美國各大著名藝廊。迪諾的作品總流露著一股神祕、浪漫且溫暖的氛圍,在他的混彩水晶世界裡,我們似乎看到了他對圓滿、和平境界的嚮往。

 

Born in Venice on May 3Oth 1948, Dino Rosin was taken by his family while still an infant to live on Murano, the glassproducing island in the Venice lagoon. On leaving school at the age of 12, Dino began work straight away with much passion and dedication as an apprentice at one of the isle 's oldest and most renowned glass factories, 'Barovier e Toso  His love for glass working gave him the chance to quickly earn a reputation, his energetic spirit letting him express his enthusiasm when modeling this unique material.  In 1963 joined his brothers, Loredano and Mirco, already owners of the giass studio 'Artvet'.  Then 15 years old, Dino started working with his brother Loredano, who was gaining success as a new master glassworker It was then that Egidio Costantini, owner of the renowned Fucina degli Angeli (Angels' Furnace), suggested that they came to collaborate with the rnost famous artists of the time: Picasso, Chagall, Jean Cocteau and Le Corbusier to mention only a few of the leading names who frequented his furnace-workshop.

 

For Dino, the feeling he experiences when working with glass is one of pleasure: the giving of form to his own ideas and the consolidating of his creative talent into objects that can be admired and touch ed.  In 1988, together with Loredano and the American glass artist Wiiliam Morris, he was invited to demonstrate his WOV at working molten glass at the 'Pilchuck Glass School' in Washington State. It Is a collaboration that Dino has kept up with the school ever Since.  In 1991, however, the Rosin family was plunged into morning. Loredano. the much Loved brother, suffered fatal head injuries in a motor-launch collision in the waters of the Venice Iagoon. The tragedy deeply affected all the family and Dino was overcome by the loss. On recalling the ,moment, he says 'When I was brought the news about mv brother I felt I had died along with him. I was literally shattered'.  It was only after some months that, with the help of his son, Diego - who in the meantime had gained his diploma in desi- gn at the Venice Art Institute - and the sincere support of his valuable colleagues, Dino managed to overcome this period of grief and concentrate again on his creations, this time with perhaps an even a greater commitment and tenacity than before. 

 

Today Dino Rosin, together with his brother, Mirco – who runs the organizational and admninistrative side of things, is dedicated to a new venture,' DINO ROSIN ARTE STUDIO s.r.l. each day he continues to create wonderful glass sculptures. His best works are on show at many prestigious art galleries throughout the world.  Along with the generous daily activity in producing his works, master glass-artist Dino shows a special sensitivity in following the training of new talents, among whom his san Diego, who after completing his studies and enrolling at the Accademia delle Belle Ratio, Venice, has come to work with his father for creating both new (see Nuova coppa scultura) and established models.
